Abstract: 
"Revolution As an Eternal Dream: the Exemplary Failure of the Madame Bihn Graphics Collective" examines the political practice and visual propaganda of a now-obscure women's poster, printmaking, and street art collective based in New York City between 1975 and 1983. For a brief, intense period of time, the MBGC collaborated on projects against racism and in solidarity with national liberation movements, producing many beautiful multicolored silkscreen prints, note cards, banners, posters and other print ephemera before withdrawing into the isolation of a sectarian and militaristic political line. By 1982 its core members were in prison or underground. "Revolution As an Eternal Dream" calls up the perpetual desire for revolution, but also the frailty of such dreams.

Magazine, Day of Action Against Street Harassment
Date:

Abstract: 
According to a 2003 survey by the Young Women's Action Team (YWAT)a positive call to action was issued in December 2005, "We reached out to men and women [young and old] across Chicago to participate in a Citywide Day of Action against Street Harassment on May 4th 2006. The YWAT wanted everyone to hear the message that "The Streets Belong to All of Us." We hoped that at least 100 different "actions", individual and collective, would take place across Chicago on May 4th. We surpassed our goal with over 140 actions." And this magazine documents those actions that took place May 4, 2006.
