Edited by Agata Jakubowska and Katy Deepwell

Liverpool University Press

Value Art Politics LUP

  • Presents new, original research based on archival material
  • For the first time in one book presents together case studies of all-women initiatives from North/South and East/West of Europe in the 1970s: includes Italy, Spain, UK, Portugal, Austria, Poland, Denmark, Germany (East and West), The Netherlands, France and Sweden
  • Written by scholars with profound knowledge of both global tendencies and the specificities of local contexts. Highlights the multitude and diversity of all-women artistic activities in Europe in the 1970s across liberal/democratic, Socialist and post-Dictatorship states
  • Explores two key notions about women artists' initiatives: as heterotopias where a realised physical space must be seen in relation to other sites/concepts/ideas and feminism as a travelling concept exchanged by women and realised in different ways as a cultural politic by women artists, highly dependent on their local context
