POLITICS OF MARGINALIZATION ; DIA Foundation, NYC; 30/7/89

The conference explores the conditions of being 'left out', excluded from discourse and disempowered, especially in reference to the marginalized groups within issues of race and gender.

The conference argues that women exist on the margins by virtue of a male defined centre. They ask, in what way could one undertake a strategy of reversal, to think instead about a margin defining a centre? In the cultural realm difference between the centre and periphery is a constantly shifting boundary.

When attempting to achieve participation, integration and inclusion one must take account that definitions are particular to their cultural context, to the party that produces meaning.
