Justine Kurland: SCUMB MANIFESTO Workshop at Martin Parr Foundation

14 AND 15 NOV Justine Kurland will deliver 2 one-day workshops of photography and collage at Martin Parr Foundation in Bristol, exploring her initiative – The Society for Cutting Up Men’s Books

This workshop follows her recent photobook – SCUMB MANIFESTO, published by MACK, 2022. This publication has just been shortlisted for the Aperture 2022 photobook awards.

Inspired by Valerie Solanas’ iconoclastic feminist tract SCUM (Society for Cutting Up Men) Manifesto, SCUMB Manifesto presents Justine Kurland’s own initiative – the Society for Cutting Up Men’s Books.

‘Collage has long been a feminist strategy in art as in life: hybrid, shape-shifting, multiform, rebellious, irreverent and very funny. The cut is violent but the pasting can be seen as a metaphor for mending, bringing the margins to the center, a revision rife with possibility.’ – JustineKurland

Join Justine at Martin Parr Foundation for a day dissecting the pages from existing photobooks to make your own original artwork.

Justine will also be delivering an artist talk in the MPF gallery on the evening of 14 NOV and workshop participants are also welcome to join this event.
