Work Description
Bio Eleanor Greenhalgh (UK), is a an artist and facilitator living in Rotterdam. Her work explores the ways that collaboration is mediated by both digital and social systems. With a background in grassroots organising and feminist activism, her projects create spaces for participatory research that tackles the conflicts and contradictions inherent in democratic practices.

Consentsus is a research project which relates emerging feminist practices of sexual consent to democratic decision-making more widely. Asking how we might move beyond the slogan "yes means yes", the project reveals the ways that "yes" and "no" are produced by the way questions are asked, and explores how we might encode a more radically collaborative model of consent in our digital and social tools.
