Working collaboratively with the community of Muncie IN, artist Siena Hancock, examines feminism, activism, and technology through the lens of ethnographic methodology in the social practice project Feminist Utopias. Muncie, Indiana has a unique history as the center of social experiments beginning in the 1920s as the subject of the Middletown Studies, a study of the “average” American city. In the years since, Muncie has been treated as a social barometer within the socio-political space of the United States. Additionally, Muncie was the location of the first chapter of the National Organization of Women in Indiana and a hub of the suffrage movement within the state. Conscious of this history, Hancock, chose to engage with the female, femme, and AFAB populations in order to examine the intersection of feminism, social activism, and new technologies within contemporary culture. Primarily conducting recorded one on one interviews in a curated space, Hancock additionally created ephemera such as posters, pamphlets, and small objects which were used to publicize the project.
