EMILIA-AMALIA Set of 5 Chapbooks: More Dust in Our Houses Less Dust on Our Brains

13 × 19.5 × 2.5 cm
Anthology, Collection, Feminist Theory

EMILIA-AMALIA is an exploratory working group that employs practices of citation, annotation and autobiography as modes of activating feminist art, writing and research practices.

Initiated in 2016, the group investigates historical and intergenerational feminisms, as well as relationships of mentorship, collaboration and indebtedness between artists, writers, thinkers, curators and practitioners. In tracing these lines, the group aims to elucidate the histories of feminism that have been obscured and overlooked in the narratives of 1970s, or “second-wave,” feminism that we have inherited.

EMILIA-AMALIA critically examines how we fit in with those past iterations, and also, how we might update and extend them so that they can respond to contemporary questions. Motivated by a desire to think through these questions collaboratively, each monthly meeting is structured around a text, a conversation and a writing activity.

“More Dust in Our Houses Less Dust on Our Brains” collects all five chapbooks produced by the group.

Softcover, perfect bound with a dust jacket slip, colour, edition of 50.
