Toward a Feminist Interior
Saturday, May 05
Search the internet for “Feminism and Interior Design” and you’ll find results advocating the reclaiming of the color pink or images of interiors showcasing empowering catchphrases on the wall. Beyond these mere aesthetic or surface considerations, we ask in conversation: What is a feminist interior? In what way has feminism informed the practice of interior design? This panel discusses the relationship of feminism to interior design through the lens of history, theory, and practice, and explores the ways that design is being used to create powerful and inspiring environments for women by women.
