November 5, 2012:  Kate participates in a documentary film, a book and exhibition about her life and work.


  Swedish Artists and Filmmakers, Moa and Mikaela Krestesen return to New York with their collaborators to continue to

  document Kate’s life and work in a project initiated in 2010 and supported by grants from the Konstnarsnamnden, a   

  Swedish Government institution.  The project is a multi-media portrait of Kate and reflects on Kate’s life and lifework. A

  number of questions are raised, such as: who is allowed to become a hero? What happened to the political ideals of the

  1960’s and 70’s? How do we relate to solidarity and the communal today? As part of the project, the artists have invited 

  artist/musician Jenny Wilson and documentary filmmaker Fredrik Redelius to expand the portrait of Kate Millett. Through

  this and future collaborations, they hope to overcome boundaries of genre, and open cross-generational discussions.
