A podcast series that accompanies the Women In Revolt exhibition at Tate Britain.
This 6-part mini-series explores art, activism and the women’s movement in the UK in the 1970s and 80s. From early struggles for equal pay, to punk, Thatcher and the AIDS pandemic, this was a time of extreme social, economic and political change.
Curator Linsey Young is joined by artists, makers and activists about their radical ideas and rebellious methods that changed the face of British culture and forged a path for future generations.
In Episode 6, Tough!, Roshini Kempadoo reflects on her work My Daughter’s Mind featured in the exhibition as a response to the political climate in the 1980s. The selection of panels of images and text exhibited in Women in Revolt were from the original show developed by the Ikon Gallery Touring service which toured between 1984 – 87. My Daughter’s Mind was the earliest work created by Roshini to help establish her photography and her future work with Format Women’s Picture Agency (1983 – 2003) and Autograph ABP.
