Carmen Winant’s A Brand New End, published following an exhibition by the artist at The Print Center in Philadelphia in 2022, explores over fifty years of historical and media representations of oppression and the liberation of the voice of victims of gender-based violence.
This work is the fruit of extensive research carried out by the artist in collaboration with The National Coalition Against Domestic Violence and Women in Transition, two associations fighting domestic violence in the United States.
In this work, the artist combines newspaper articles reporting on feminicide and gender-based violence, covers of celebrity magazines, photographs of activist volunteers at work, T-shirts made by survivors in artistic expression workshops, and slogan badges from demonstrations.
Carmen Winant chooses not to show violence head-on in her book. By assembling all these elements and using an abundance of short, provocative titles, she emphasizes the abnormality of these crimes and exposes systemic, sexist violence.
A Brand New End is punctuated by texts by activists, artists and theorists in gender studies and visual cultures.
