Redefining Power

Perspectives on power through feminist thought. Organized by Amber Hickey and Lindsey Sharman, ZhdK, Zürich.

What is power today? 

Power is…
“Controlling access” / “Being able to define something” / “The sex difference” / “A social resource” / “Transcendence over immanence” / “A relation, not a thing” / “A potentiality, not an actuality” / “Power over others” / “Power over oneself” /”To be able to” /….

Acknowledging the backdrop of The Arab Spring, The Occupy Movement, a renewed interest in feminism, and increasing fluidity of gender definition, this event will aim to find an array of contemporary definitions of power in collaboration with all participants and attendees.
