The Push Pops are a radical, transnational queer feminist art collective. Geared toward engendering ‘Embodied Feminism,’ Go! Push Pops employs the female body – that which is bound to a cross-cultural language of desire, signification and power – in tactical, ideological strategy. Go! Push Pops utilize gesture, exclamation and popular idiom to embody a new age discursive physicality interfacing with the ancient archetypal realm. Neo-Dada, Fluxist and Feminist, their performance work posits the body as a danger to the operation of reason and patriarchal economy of lack. A wild leap, an elusive slogan, a paroxysm of the flesh – The Push Pops reinscribe the body through participatory ritual, spontaneous performance and interactive multi-media installation.

500,000 is a Go! Push Pop performance in collaboration with Megan Welch exposing inter-military rape in the context of transnational feminism. “500,000” refers to the number of women sexually assaulted within the ranks of the U.S. Military. Inspired by Kirby Dick’s award-winning documentary Invisible War, Go! Push Pops is taking the U.S. Military’s longstanding war against women to task from the inside out. Dressed in the likeness of gender-bending officers, Go! Push Pops will lead a processional along 14th Street protesting in our embodied feminist idiom the U.S. Military’s longstanding sexually motivated violence against women.
