In ten seconds, how many synonyms can you think of for the word “power”?

And then, just when you thought that you finally got the hang of how the power structures around you function, they seem to be coming undone. But are they really coming undone, or is the current that’s pushing and pulling at them not much more than a massage, a way to keep them up to date that stays only on the surface and is not able to touch the center?

What is feminism, precisely? What are feminisms today?

To answer these questions and myriad others, the summer and September issues of e-flux journal are dedicated to feminism(s). It is a particular pleasure to embark on an exploration and an unfolding of the many complex realities and iterations that feminism can accommodate. Not one feminism, but many.

Join us in celebration of the work and words of thinkers, artists, workers, mothers, poets, historians, collaborators, fighters, conveners, killjoys, teachers, men of trans experience, women of trans experience, womyn, women, woman, men, man too* who contributed to e-flux journal’s issues #92 and #93.  

The launch features contributing authors Martha Rosler, Xin Wang, McKenzie Wark, and Elvia Wilk, introduced by editor Kaye Cain-Nielsen.

*With contributions thus far by Mirene Arsanios, Mary Walling Blackburn, Angela Dimitrakaki, Irmgard Emmelhainz, Renee Gladman, Élisabeth Lebovici and Giovanna Zapperi, Ewa Majewska, Chus Martínez, Pilar Villela Mascaró, Griselda Pollock, Elizabeth A. Povinelli, Elvia Wilk, Simone White, and more contributors to come.

McKenzie Wark (she/her) teaches at The New School and is the author, most recently, of Love and Money, Sex and Death (Verso, 2023), Raving (Duke, 2023), and Philosophy for Spiders (Duke, 2021).

Xin Wang is a curator and art historian based in New York. A PhD candidate in Art History at the Institute of Fine Arts, New York University, she is writing a dissertation on Soviet hauntology. She was the curator of “To Your Eternity,” the fourth technology and art biennial at Beijing’s Today Art Museum, 2023.

Elvia Wilk is a New York-based writer and a contributing editor at e-flux journal. Her first novel, Oval, was published in June 2019 by Soft Skull press. Her work can be found at www.elviapw.com.

Martha Rosler utilizes various media in her work, primarily video and photography, and also installation and sculpture; she also writes about art and culture. Her work has for decades considered matters of the public sphere and mass culture; war and geopolitical conflict; housing, urbanism, and the built environment, and systems of transportation—especially as these affect women. Many of her projects have been extrainstitutional or developed and enacted with groups of people. Rosler sees her work, her teaching, and her writing as continuations of a broader engagement with the currents of cultural critique and social and political change. Her work may best be summed up as both a conceptual art and an activist practice—focused on questions of representational form but joined, however uneasily, to a commitment to political agitation. Video, which she adopted in its infancy, presented itself as at the crossroads of both. Rosler spent the 1970s in California and Canada. In 1980, she returned to her native Brooklyn, where she lives and works.
