To mark the release of Dora García’s publication, Love with Obstacles (Amor Rojo), The Rose Art Museum invites you to a virtual book launch and conversation exploring the rich legacy of Alexandra Kollantai. Kollontai (St. Petersburg,1872– Moscow, 1952) was an October revolutionary, social activist, feminist, and intellectual who was a key agitator for the sexual and social emancipation of women.
Moderated by Senior Curator-at-Large Ruth Estévez, Dora García will be joined by contributing writers Rina Ortiz and Anna-Sophie Springer, and by Brandeis Professor and Black, Queer feminist scholar Shoniqua Roach. Tune in for a lively discussion on Kollantai’s contributions towards protecting women’s rights, the importance of fiction and private correspondence in the construction of political thought, and how Kollantai’s ideas on radical social change continue to inspire and mobilize a new generation of feminist thinkers and activists.
The conversation will be hosted online via Zoom Webinar. Please RSVP to receive login credentials!
This program is in conjunction with Dora García: Love with Obstacles. While our physical galleries are currently only open to the campus community, you can explore the exhibition virtually through online materials and installation images.
