'Undoing, Redoing, Revolting: A Feminist Response to the Special Collections at Chelsea College of Arts'

A Survival Kit by Jo Bruton is part of the exhibition Undoing, Redoing, Revolting: A Feminist Response to the Special Collections, which just opened at the Chelsea College of Art Library.

A Survival Kit
responds to Ida Applebroog’s book series A Performance (1977), in which the home looks like a stage and a dangerous space for women to occupy. Using the handbag as prop and necessity, Bruton’s A Survival Kit remakes Applebroog’s book into said kit to reveal a ‘hidden narrative’.

Denise Ackerl & Maurizio Cattelan
