NOBODY PUTS BABY IN A CORNER was a series of feminist gatherings in NYC through 2009-2010 initiated by Malin Arnell and Johanna Gustavsson, two Swedish artists attending the Whitney Independent Study Program.
The idea was to create an ongoing feminist discussion, inviting artists, activists and theorists to share fascination, indignation and excitement about societal structures, private parties, political fiction, personal faction and all those situations that constitutes everyday life. The project itself aimed to expand experiences of collaboration and develop participatory practices. With our activities we hope to contribute to the overthrowing of male supremacy, ethnical supremacy and of hierarchies connected to physical and mental ability, sexuality and class. We framed the meetings through feminist pedagogy.
