Trafalgar Square, London

Over the past twelve-months Inheritance have been working with artists Malin Arnell, Kajsa Dahlberg, Johanna Gustavsson and Fia-Stina Sandlund to stage a public reading of Zoe Leonard's 1992 manifesto "I want a President...". The event took place on the eve of the UK General Election 2015 and is part of a series of readings that have happened internationally that attempt to orientate a recent history of queer and feminist political struggle toward a set of present concerns.
