Consentus is an open research project, contributing to a critical feminist theory of consent and connecting it to collaborative production and consensus.

Through interviews, workshops and events, Consentsus explores the questions:

  • What is missing from current definitions of consent? How is consent produced and manipulated?
  • Beyond "yes means yes", what would a radical theory of consent look like?
  • (How) could a feminist critique of consent be applied to other types of collaboration and decision-making?

Consentsus is an art/activist project facilitated by Eleanor Greenhalgh, supported by the Piet Zwart Institute, Rotterdam. It will culminate in the production of a democratically-edited publication during the exhibition News from Nowhere at V2 Institute for the Unstable Media, Rotterdam, in July 2013.
