MONDAYS WITH CARMEN KYNARD
WELCOME TO WEEK seven OF CLASS (october 10) HTTPS://BIT.LY/TRACING-CK
Welcome to Nicole's RR#3 "which is a paper collage on a 18x6 inch stretched canvas frame. The images were pulled from various magazines from the last few years, including Oprah's magazine as well as Cosmopolitan. The imagery both references Afrofuturism and is inherently anachronistic, as the antique clock is layered between images of 'present' and 'future' times. The women at the bottom is lounging in what might be interpreted as a past-present-future act of rest as resistance (@thenapministry). In almost a dream-like form, the women above her stands resilient, confident, facing forward. Her reflection is seen looking either backward or at the viewer in the shattered glass above her shoulder."
Please reach out to Nicole know if you'd like to share collage materials (canvases, cut-outs, tools, etc.) and/or co-create if you are interested in trying out collage!
(and BIG THANKS to Nicole for allowing me to share this beautiful work! I hope you all feel creative-intellectually inspired!)
IV. Sourcing "Endarkened" Feminist Methodologies
On your chart paper, address the following (feel free to make a 2-sided chart):
- Define Black feminist methodologies based on the videos above (and your readings). Name any specific lessons/things to consider from these authors.
- As a group or individually, chart out your positionality statement. In particular, who are you when you write/speak/research with an intersectional lens on gender, race, socioeconomic status, sexuality, disability (especially in violent contexts) and why? How and why do you do what you do?
V. Open Discussion
