In depth history of Art and Feminism. Phaidon almost always does a great job with their books...

Couldn't quite get on with this book. The introduction was too "art historian" for my level of knowledge and many of the works were performance pieces represented by still photos with descriptions which made many of them sound juvenile and pretentious. Images of some of the static pieces did have more meaning to me, but again the descriptions seemed to refer to a closed-in art world aesthetic. Maybe that's what being an artist is all about, and I will never get it.

from Amazon (this text refers to the revised and updated edition from 2012): Art and Feminism is a must-have resource for those interested in contemporary art, art history, and feminist and gender studies. The book features the work of 150 artists such as Louise Bourgeois, Paula Rego, Roni Horn, and Orlan. Art and Feminism is unique in the way it juxtaposes artists, theories and artistic practices, not usually discussed together. The sections are divided thematically, with section headings such as 'Identity crises' 'Corporeality,' 'Personalizing the political' and 'femmes de siecle' suggesting the breadth of studies and movements examined in the book. This is a resource unparalleled in the study of feminist art, for all those with an interest in art, or the feminist movement.… (mais)
