Developed with artist Alex Martinis Roe, Productive Refusals is one of twenty propositions for feminist collective practices which form the subject of Martinis Roe’s 2016 film Our Future Network, 2016, and which premiered as part of Martinis Roe’s 2015 exhibition To Become Two. \ud \ud The proposition, Productive Refusals, is that saying ‘no’ can be a productive way to change existing habits and systems. It can open up new and unexpected possibilities, and change situations for the better. The proposition was developed as part of the Our Future Network residential workshop in Germany in May 2016. It asked the twenty female workshop participants to think of a time when they had said ‘yes,’ but felt that they should have said ‘no,’ and to think of how they might have said ‘no’ in ways that proved productive. The proposition also invited them to reflect on a time that someone had said ‘no’ to them, and how this in turn opened up the possibilities for change. Possible responses to situations in which saying ‘no’ would be more productive than ‘yes’ were then written up in the form of calling cards, inspired by those of artist Adrian Piper, which Martinis Roe filmed participants reading, direct-to-camera.
