Please join us for the launch of Kunstverein Publishing’s The Lip Anthology and Kunstverein’s end of season drinks & sausage sizzle

Saturday July 13, 4-7 pm


Editor of The Lip Anthology Vivian Ziherl will talk about Lip at 5pm, and be joined by respondent Rachel O’Reilly from the JVE, discussing the periodization of feminist art histories and (neo)liberal present takes on the politics of recognition.

magazine was self-published by women in Melbourne from 1976 to 1984 and stood as a lightning rod for Australian feminist artistic practice over the Women’s Liberation era. The art and ideas expressed over Lip’s lifetime track with groundbreaking moves into performance, ecology, social-engagement and labor politics; all at an intersection with local realities.

Collecting and presenting the materials of Lip for the first time since their original appearance, The Lip Anthology, edited by Vivian Ziherl, privileges the range and dynamism of contesting feminisms that comprised the Lip project. Selected interviews, artist-pages, essays and activist reports are re-produced in facsimile, preserving Lip’s graphic experimentation.

The Lip Anthology is published by Kunstverein Publishing and Macmillan Publishing, co-produced with Grazer Kunstverein and with the support of the Australia Council for the Arts and the TEWRR.
