- "'To become two: propositions for feminist collective practice' offers a narrative of artist Alex Martinis Roe's research into a genealogy of feminist political practices in Europe and Australia from the seventies until today. These practices include those of the Milan Women's Bookstore co-operative; Psychanalyse et Politique, Paris; Gender Studies (formerly Women's Studies) at Utrecht University; a network in Sydney including people involved in the Sydney Filmmakers Co-operative, Feminist Film Workers, Working Papers Collective, and the Department of General Philosophy at Sydney University; and Duoda-Women's Research Centre and Ca la Dona, a women's documentation centre and encounter space in Barcelona. Drawing from their practices and experiences, Martinis Roe's research forms a proposal for a transgenerational approach to feminist politics. This is further developed as a practical handbook of twenty new propositions for feminist collective practice, which were formed in collaboration with a network of contributors through experiments with these historical practices"--Publisher's website.
