"Emma Goldman Action" Artist: Zanny Begg Performance: Anya Rosen

Proposing a work for New York, a city I have only visited very briefly once, and with Anya, an artist I have only met through skype, was a challenging experience. As I began research on this project I chanced upon a collection of speeches by Emma Goldman. As I re-read one of her speeches from New York I was struck by a collapsing sense of time. One hundred years ago Emma Goldman was arrested for distributing information on birth control for women. Today this question has reinserted itself into the political landscape with renewed force. History loops and twists and turns. Victories are won and defeats endured. Struggles grow and grow. This action pays tribute to a fighter who imagined the city of New York differently. - Zanny Begg
