[and before:] HACKNEY FLASHERS EXPOSED:
40th Anniversary of a Women’s Photographic Collective, 1974-1980
Sunday 12th October 2014, 2-5pm
Chats Palace, 42-44 Brooksby’s Walk, London E9 6DF
The Hackney Flashers Collective was active as a feminist agitprop group in
London 1974 -1980. The group produced two photographic/graphic exhibitions
addressing complex ideas about women’s lives as workers and as mothers,
inside and outside the home: Women and Work and Who’s Holding the Baby.
To mark the recent launch of the Hackney Flashers website the group are
calling a meeting of the generations: how did they work as a collective in
the 1970s? How is the struggle for the most basic of women’s rights being
carried on now, forty years later? A rare chance to see some of the
exhibition panels from the time and to discuss work still to be done.
Free and open to all. Should be exciting!
