S.C.U.M. Manifesto 1967

##

S.C.U.M. Manifesto 1967 stages a reading of Valerie Solanas’s eponymous manifesto from 1967. As news images of male-dominated world events flicker across the television screen, Delphine Seyrig disseminates Valerie Solanas’s theses on men – who, according to the manifesto, are both biologically incomplete and driven by vagina envy.
