Cunt Quilt (Home) at Queens Museum October 2018

October 28, 2018

Dozens of participants gathered on a crisp Fall afternoon for the Q4 2018 Stitch n Bitch at Queens Museum as part of the S.T.E.P exhibition opening. Feminists across the spectrum laid out a palette of donated women’s underwear on the museum floor in preparation for the latest City of Today for Feminine Urbanism flag. Cunt Quilt (Home) is a house logo with a symbolic “keyhole” opening in place of an inviting door and was co-created by a diverse group of individuals who discussed housing vulnerability from gentrification to globalization. After sharing stories of eviction, homelessness, nuisance abatement and immigration; the group consensus that housing is a basic human right was central to the discussion. Shortly thereafter, an image was formed by critiquing existing logos against the collaborator’s own experiences. Four hours later, a spectrum of vibrant, multi-colored panties were stitched and pinned onto a stained, Queen sized bed sheet to represent the intersectional feminist movement’s fundamental demand: Access to Housing.
