The blog of the .dpi journal is an online community for feminist artists and their allies (researchers, curators, artist-run-centres and collectives, among others). The aim of the blog is to offer information and a platform for reflection, works in progress, events and resources relevant to feminist artists, and to inspire discussion on the themes touched on by the .dpi journal.

Margaret Harrison: at the forefront of feminist art practice

A review of Margaret Harrison's latest exhibit in London. Originally published via the London-based art network artlyst.

Photo from Margaret Harrison exhibit.

The stout, lumpy figure of Ena Sharples stands at the corner of a functional looking balcony staring out over the rooftops of an anonymous urban landscape. A mishmash of red brick terraced streets fades into obscurity behind her. She slumps heavily over the railings wearing an unflattering Ulster coat and an expression of discontent. It's a melancholy portrait.

From a Free Software Movement to a Free Safety Movement

by micha cárdenas

This is a call to all feminist hackers, anti-racist coders, gender hackers, genderchangers, queer and trans hackers, political hackers, anti-violence activists and networked activists to help stop violence against queer and trans* people, people of color, disabled people and women.

Many forms of daily violence - sexual, gender, racial, ableist and state-sponsored (committed by police) - are only increasing. As global warming, neoliberalism, and neocolonialism continue, more and more people are subject to violence on a daily basis due to social instability. This is a call to people to acknowledge that the Internet era has not brought more safety but less. This is a call to say we need more people hacking safety. Why do we have better software to share pictures of lunch than we do to keep each other safe?
