Research Collaboration with Artist Chloe Cooper of Bedfellows Collective

About Bedfellows
Bedfellows is currently investigating sexual identities, desire, consent, and feminist porn. Bedfellows ask whether, as artists trained in visual literacy, they might be able to deconstruct the dominant tropes of the image-heavy sexual landscape we’re in. It’s happening all the time but it manifested itself most recently in the form of three research group meetings at The Caged Antelope in Deptford; a Charismatic Megafauna gig; a series of SEX TALK MTGs at Serpentine Gallery, Tate Britain and Assembly (Portland, USA); a lecture at Wimbledon College of Arts; and a radio show at Reactor Halls E15: You can’t win them all, ladies & gentlemen.
