As part of her residency, artist Nina Wakeford discusses the concept of feminist political ambivalence with Professor Clare Hemmings. 

How do we feel about past feminisms? What manifestations might our retellings of feminisms take? What forms of feminist histories do we need in the context of rapid social and technological change?

What might be considered as problematic key figures must be brought back precisely because of the challenges they pose.
