Subjective Feminist Genealogies collates individuals and projects that explore diasporic and marginalised experiences in the UK by offering alternative histories and reframing existing narratives through a genealogical lens. It guides those displaced or dispossessed as a reminder that they are seen and recognised. This project signifies a space that allows them to speak and be heard, where they can subvert and repossess their histories and experiences. It aims to provide them with the agency to pave the way for the representation of their diasporic identities and situated knowledge.

The project centres around a practice that focuses on the methodology of subversion, reinterpreting, and reframing existing narratives to give voice to marginalised perspectives and challenge dominant assumptions and power structures. It emphasises the importance of preserving and sharing those experiences and perspectives. It aims to use one's practice to repossess and reclaim marginalised identities and experiences from the dominant narratives that have traditionally erased or silenced them.

It serves as a testament to unity, care, and resilience in the face of adversity. It exemplifies the profound impact of artistic practices in fostering understanding, empathy, and social change, reminding us that through art, we can cultivate a more inclusive and just world.

Subjective Feminist Genealogies is an ongoing curatorial project representative of a work in progress. While the publications are complete, this website shall grow and evolve with the progression of the project's development.

To question our cultures is to question our own existence, our human reality. To confront this fact means to acquire an awareness of ourselves. This in turn becomes a search, a questioning of who we are and how we will realize ourselves.

— Ana Mendieta, 1980
