Feminist Art Activisms and Artivisms
International scholars and artists show how feminist art and activism can intervene in social processes
The term “artivism” seems to have become a catchword for any woman’s empowerment through the arts. This volume aims to critically dissect this catchword, unveiling the diversity of practices and realities that it comprises.
Representing a range of critical insights, perspectives, and practices from artists, activists, and academics, Feminist Art Activisms and Artivisms reflects on the role of feminist interventions in the fields of contemporary art, the public sphere, and politics, touching upon broader questions of cultural difference, history, class, economic position, ecology, politics, sexual orientation, and the ways in which these intersect.
