The Feminifesto Seminar Club: Session 7

In this session, Malavika Mani took us through a fun set of exercises that mapped behavioural responses, perspectives, and observations in response to a set of pictures. Through two rounds, Malavika took us through one set of pictures with different approaches to viewing, to focusing on, and to consuming the images, and then had us map out our views on each picture. Following that, we shared what we gathered from each image. The deeper learning is that every viewing begins from a place of conditioning, and that subsequent viewings enable us to engage with the piece that we are shown without the prejudicial view that conditioning imposes on us.
