guerrilla it up

This symposium video gives a good account of the work of the Guerrilla Girls, a feminist artists’ collective that formed back in the mid-80s. From the smatterings of info I’ve seen around, it appears that they are still active, but not to the level that they used to be, having split up into 3 tranches. This video is a nub in the sense that it’s sort of like a toolkit for all those budding feminist activists out there. The beauty of the Guerrilla Girls concept is that anyone can adopt it and it has an almost timeless quality. Accept for if you are a boy…’Guerrilla Boys’ just doesn’t have the kind of ring we’re going for here does it. One thing I wish about this nub though. I wish they hadn’t put that vertical neon green line there.
