Irene Lusztig on Creating a Large-scale Public Feminist Conversation

Bringing historical objects into present-day discussion

"I'm really interested in taking something historical, which could be a film, documents, or an archive, and thinking about how to bring it into conversation in a present day space or with a present day public. Right now I'm thinking about large-scale public feminist conversation and whether it's possible to have that conversation today. So I'm using an archive of letters that were written to the editor of Ms Magazine in the 70's, thousands of unpublished letters, and inviting people to read and respond to those letters all over the country."
