There is No Neutral Space
– Evening #3 with Lizzie Borden curated by Pétunia

Starting Wednesday, 4 September 2019, at co. (company projects), the film program There is No Neutral Space introduces the writers, theoreticians, and artists who have been featured in Petunia or films that have been reviewed within the journal since 2009.

The film program paves the way for the upcoming symposium Passages – two days of discussions, screenings, lectures and performances – that takes place at co. (company projects) on Friday, 27 September 2019, and at Goethe in the Skyways on Saturday, 28 September 2019. Coinciding with the conclusion of both Goethe Pop Up Minneapolis Goethe in the Skyways and the dislocation of co. (company projects), the symposium’s aim is to invite critical feedback while reflecting on the notions of legacy, of transition, of commitment to the local, as well as of urban space/architectural environment.

Films are screened every Wednesday in September, 6.30 pm.

The screenings are free of charge.

Lizzie Borden
Born in Flames, 1983, 79 min

Born in Flames is a 1983 documentary-style feminist fiction film by Lizzie Borden that explores racism, classism, sexism, and heterosexism in an alternative United States socialist democracy. The title comes from the song “Born in Flames” written by a member of Art & Language, Mayo Thompson of the band Red Krayola. The movie that rocked the foundations of the early Indie film world, this provocative, thrilling classic is a fantasy of female rebellion set in America ten years after a social democratic cultural revolution. When Adelaide Norris, the black radical founder of the Woman’s Army, is mysteriously killed, a diverse coalition of women – across all lines of ace, class, and sexual preference – emerges to blow the System apart. 

This project is supported by Etant Donnés Contemporary Art, a program developed by FACE Foundation and the Cultural Services of the French Embassy in the United States, with lead funding from the French Ministry of Culture and Institut Français-Paris, the Florence Gould Foundation, The Ford Foundation, the Helen Frankenthaler Foundation, Chanel USA, the ADAGP, and the CPGA.
