Justine Kurland: SCUMB Manifesto

Kurland’s Society for Cutting Up Men’s Books is an object-based, tactile imagining of matriarchal paradise. Seeking and picturing freedom, at the core of much of Kurland’s work, is located here in the artistic act itself: Kurland is purging her own cherished library of photography books authored by white men and utilizing these materials to create new photographic collages.
