"Our Bodies, Online" is a part of the Confounding Expectations lecture series, which is sponsored by Aperture Foundation, the Department of Photography at Parsons The New School for Design, and the Vera List Center for Art and Politics.

This conversation will focus on how women wield images of their bodies online as a tool of power and/or as sexual objectification, exploring the question of who is allowed to use their body in this way. What are the implications of bodies imaging themselves online in the name of feminism? What are the rules of feminism now? Should there be boundaries and definitions? The conversation will be moderated by artist and writer Carmen Winant.

Participants
Aria Dean, artist and writer
Johanna Fateman, writer and musician
Ann Hirsch, artist
Amanda Hunt, Associate Curator at The Studio Museum in Harlem.
André Singleton, artist
Carmen Winant, Professor of Visual Studies and Feminist Art History at Columbus College of Art and Design
