“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. Additional speakers to be announced.

This program is supported, in part, by the Anne Levy Fund, William Talbott Hillman Foundation, Inc., and the Board of Trustees and Members of Aperture Foundation. Additional public funds are from the New York State Council on the Arts with the support of Governor Andrew M. Cuomo and the New York State Legislature, and the New York City Department of Cultural Affairs in partnership with the City Council.

Carmen Winant (b. 1983, San Francisco) is an artist, writer, and professor of visual studies and contemporary art history at Columbus College of Art and Design.
