EVERYONE SHOULD CHECK OUT & SUPPORT K8 @ THE WHITNEY BIENNIAL 2012 ♀
All Girls Together by Kathy AckerThe Spice Girls are the biggest, brashest girlie group ever to have hit the British mainstream. Kathy Acker is an avant-garde American writer and academic. They met up in New York to swap notes - on boys, girls, politics. And what they really, really want.Fifty-second street. West Side, New York City. Hell’s Kitchen - one of those areas into which no one would once have walked unless loaded. Guns or drugs or both. But now it has been gentrified: the beautiful people have won. A man in middle-aged-rocker uniform, tight black jeans and nondescript T-shirt, lets Nigel, the photographer, and me through the studio doorway; then a chipmunk-sort-of-guy in shorts, with a Buddha tattooed on one of his arms, greets us warmly. This is Muff, the band’s publicity officer. We’re about to meet the Girls …
And that is what we mean when we say “Not selling out. Sneaking in.” ™
women of color (and i’m using this as a political term rather than a racial description) get a blog post.
and then get punched in the face for writing the blog post.
so while i strongly support people like champagne candy and emmy doing what they are doing as editors and navigating that space *because they actively work to open that space up to others*—
other folks, i just stare at them and eat my ice cream.
