Physical Description
445 pages : illustrations, facsimiles, portraits ; 23 cm.
The first volume in the new Plural series, this publication seeks to critically dissect the term 'activism,' which today seems to have become a catchword for any woman's empowerment through the arts, and reveal the diversity of practices and realities that it comprises. Presenting a range of critical insights, perspectives, and practices from artists, activists, and academics, it reflects on the role of feminist interventions in the field of contemporary art, the public sphere, and politics. In the process, it touches upon broader questions of cultural difference, history, class, economic standing, ecological issues, and sexual orientation, as well as the ways in which these intersect.
