The Feminist Media Studio, located in the CJ building at Concordia University (Loyola campus), supports and critically engages with complex media representations of gendered social life. We interrogate, critically analyze and creatively engage the political potency of feminist practice, from artists’ and activists’ use of public engagements, web-based platforms, installations and image making. We seek to share and collectively build aesthetic strategies for making visible persistent forms of gender-based oppression and exploitation, for exploring gendered subjectivity and sexuality, attentive to the challenges of working across racial, gendered, class-based, historical and geographical divisions.
