Work with artist Navine G. Khan-Dossos on Women and Violence

Lisa has collaborated with the artist Navine G. Khan-Dossos, whose work engages with the cultural treatment of women as both targets and perpetrators of violence. Navine contacted Lisa after having read her book The Subject of Murder, which theorizes the ways in which Western culture struggles to understand the figure of the exceptional violent woman.

On 31st October, Lisa participated in a filmed public conversation with Navine at the Van Abbemuseum in Eindhoven, The Netherlands, the site of Navine’s installation Echo Chamber, a non-representational engagement with the case of Samantha Lewthwaite, the British female Islamic convert and assumed terrorist.

More collaborations between Lisa and Navine are planned.
