Presented by Aarhus 2017
FUTURE FEMINISM calls for the emergence of a feminine collective consciousness to save what remains of our world.
For European Capital of Culture Aarhus 2017, Anohni, Aarhus 2017 Artist-in-Residence, invites her New York-based collaborators Kembra Pfahler and Johanna Constantine to present their iconic exhibition, FUTURE FEMINISM, comprised of 13 monolithic works. A series of performances, talks, workshops and events hosted by the artists will transpire during the course of the exhibit.
Since its first showing in 2014, aspects of the text from FUTURE FEMINISM have been widely appropriated in popular culture, most notably Tenet #13: "THE FUTURE IS FEMALE," which was subsequently marketed by t-shirt companies and even proclaimed by Hillary Clinton earlier this year. It is within the context of the constellation of ”13 Tenets of Future Feminism" that the radical prescription for change at the heart of this landmark work be accurately assessed.
