Anna Bunting-Branch W.I.T.C.H. (“Women Inspired To Commit Herstory” and other tales…) (8 mins, 2015)
Exhibition Launch 19/11/15, 6.00-8.00pm
W.I.T.C.H. draws on current research into feminist science fiction stories read through histories of feminism’s so-called “second-wave” of the 1960s and 1970s. Employing techniques of painting and digital animation, W.I.T.C.H. takes feminist fan fiction as a model of engagement: appropriating imagery, characters and settings from different sources and re-mixing them to imagine new narrative possibilities.
Exhibition open 20/11/15 – 04/12/2015, 10.00am-4.00pm
