Genevieve Goffman

Genevieve Goffman was born in Washington D.C. At nineteen, she moved to Portland, OR, where she was heavily involved in creating grassroots community responses to sexual assault and gendered violence and facilitating conversations about accountability in leftist communities. She also worked with SEIU to organize against evictions and push for housing rights. She graduated from Reed College with a degree in Art in 2015 and has shown work at the Edith Feldenhiemer Gallery, S1, The Melanie Flood Project, The White Gallery, and HQHQ in Portland, OR, Gallery 102 in Berlin, Germany and the University of Ideas Cittadellarte in Bielle, Italy. She spoke about the dangers of fascism in the art and fitness world at INCA in Seattle and about art, Politics and memory in Berlin.. In her writing, she has argued that any body appearing in a work of art should be credit as an artist, discussed the crucial role gender plays in cementing white nationalism and the toxic psychological appeal of men like Donald Trump. She has also written at length about the loss of meaning in words that describe mourning and suffering as well as the importance of framing political convictions as conviction beyond the idiotic culture of giving offensive and feeling offended.
