#15 Jos Boys: Piss on Pity T-Shirt

15 June 2022

From market stalls to the hammer, protest placards to festivals, the third edition of 30 Objects in 30 Days brings together a wonderful collection of individuals and objects as part of LFA 2022.

We are asking 30 key figures in the industry to nominate an 'object' that they feel best represents this year’s festival theme of ‘act’ and ‘architecture’ and share a video explaining why.

For her selection Jos has chosen the Piss on Pity t-shirt, an important symbol of disability activism in the UK.

Jos is Co-Director of The DisOrdinary Architecture Project, with disabled artist Zoe Partington. She is Director of the Learning Environments Equality, Diversity and Inclusion Centre (LEEDIC) at The Bartlett UCL, as well as having many years’ experience in community-based practice and research. This includes being a co-founder of Matrix feminist design collective in the 1980s, as well as more recently co-curating an exhibition and an online archive about Matrix and their work.
