S.A. Bachman is a socially engaged artist, advocate, and educator. She is the co-founder of two artist collaboratives, THINK AGAIN and LOUDER THAN WORDS. Bachman recruits art in the service of public address while examining the ways that capitalism, white supremacy, and misogyny conspire to jeopardize women, non-human animals, and the outnumbered. Working at the intersection of art and social justice, she employs appropriated images to explore how the mass media constructs our conceptions of race, class, gender, democracy, and conformity. Bachman’s recent work addresses structural violence against women, the exploitation of non-human animals, economic inequality, undocumented labor, queer liberation, and prison abolition. Her interdisciplinary practice utilizes photomontage, mobile billboards, outdoor projection, moving image, and offset printing.
Bachman has received fellowships and awards from the National Endowment for the Arts, the Massachusetts Cultural Council and the New England Foundation for the Arts. Her photographs and interventionist projects have been exhibited at the Philadelphia Museum of Art, the Institute of Contemporary Art (Boston and Philadelphia), the Museu d´Art Contemporani de Barcelona, the Rose Art Museum and the Alternative Museum. Bachman’s work is in the collections of the Los Angeles County Museum of Art, the Palacio de Bellas Artes Ciudad de México and the Center for the Study of Political Graphics. It has been reviewed in Artforum, Ms. and Social Text. Her political posters and photographs are published in Reframings: New American Feminist Photographies and Graphic Agitation 2. The early projects of THINK AGAIN are documented in the monograph, A Brief History of Outrage.
