Gender, artWork and the global imperative

A materialist feminist critique

Angela Dimitrakaki

Published by Manchester University Press

Rethinking Arts Histories MUP

  • The first Anglophone feminist study of art and gender in globalisation (since 1989)
  • A rigorous updating of feminist art history and 'new art history', as two major trends in the discipline of art history overall, and it will become essential course material
  • Identifies a number of new themes: female art and curatorial collectives, travel as work, contemporary art as labour, masculinity in global space, the link between art and labour
  • Discusses and brings together artists who are very visible in the biennial & new institutional context but who have not been discussed together
  • The first book to place Eastern European women artists squarely in a global art history, or to think across developments in Latin America and Europe
  • The first book to focus on art as gendered labour, filling a notable gap in scholars' increasing emphasis on art as labour
