Gender, Artwork and the Global Imperative

  • Publisher: Unknown

Is gender implicated in how art does its work in the world created by global capital? Is a global imperative exclusive to capital’s planetary expansion or also witnessed in oppositional practices in art and curating? And what is new in the gendered paradigms of art after the fall of the Berlin Wall? Angela Dimitrakaki addresses these questions in an insightful and highly original analysis of travel as artistic labour, the sexualisation of migration as a relationship between Eastern and Western Europe, the rise of female collectives, masculinity and globalisation’s ‘bad boys’, the emergence of a gendered economic subject that has dethroned postmodernism, and the need for a renewed materialist feminism.Now available in paperback, this is a theoretically astute overview of developments in art and its contexts since the 1990s and the first study to attempt a critical refocusing of feminist politics in art history in the wake of globalisation. It will be essential reading in art history, gender, feminist and globalisation studies, curatorial theory, cultural studies and beyond.

Working with Feminism: Curating and Exhibitions in Eastern Europe

  • Categories: Art

This edited collection, bringing together art historians and curators working both in the ‘East’ and the ‘West’ of Europe, is a result of a growing interest in the theorisation and historical analysis of feminist curating as a distinct practice with its own transnational history and politics. In most former state-socialist countries of Eastern Europe, the emergence and public visibility of feminist curating and exhibitions usually dates back to the 1990s and is associated with the radical transformation of art practices, ideologies and art systems as well as with wider socio-political and intellectual changes, and challenges, of post-socialist transition. This history, and its legacy...

Politics in a Glass Case

  • Categories: Art

What happens to art when feminism grips the curatorial imagination? How do sexual politics become realised as exhibits? Is the struggle against gender discrimination compatible with the aspirations of museums led by market values? Beginning with the feminist critique of the art exhibition in the 1970s and concluding with reflections on intersectional curating and globalisation after 2000, this pioneering collection offers an alternative narrative of feminism’s impact on art. The essays provide rigorous accounts of developments in Scandinavia, Eastern and Southern Europe as well as the UK and US, framed by an introduction which offers a politically engaging navigation of historical and curr...

Based on substantial curatorial and academic research, the book proposes a new narrative for art produced globally from the 1990s to the present day: that art gradually shifted from an emphasis on cultural subjects associated with postmodernism to an exploration of economic relations. In an extensive Introduction, the editors and curators of the group exhibition ECONOMY (Edinburgh and Glasgow, 2013) outline the main argument, by examining the socio-economic context which led to the explosion of globalisation as crisis in 2008 as well as selected theorisations of that context and contemporary art. The essays in the volume, drawn from art theory, social studies and political economy, elucidate...

Cartographies of the Absolute

Can capital be seen? Cartographies of the Absolute surveys the disparate answers to this question offered by artists, film-makers, writers and theorists over the past few decades. It zones in on the crises of representation that have accompanied the enduring crisis of capitalism, foregrounding the production of new visions and artefacts that wrestle with the vastness, invisibility and complexity of the abstractions that rule our lives.

Sex and Buildings

Massive modern skyscrapers, obelisks, towers—all are structures that, thanks to their phallic shape, are often associated with sex. But other buildings are more subtly connected, as they provide the frameworks for our sexual lives and act as reminders of our sexual memories. This relationship between sex and buildings mattered more than ever in the United States and Europe during the turbulent twentieth century, when a culture of unprecedented sexual frankness and tolerance emerged and came to dominate many aspects of public life. Part architectural history, part cultural history, and part travelogue, Sex and Buildings explores how progressive sexual attitudes manifest themselves in archit...

The New Europe at the Crossroads

The New Europe at the Crossroads is composed of a selection of essays presented in August 1997 at the 'New Europe at the Crossroads Conference', held in York, England. The diverse essays show that a united Europe is far more complex than anticipated by the architects of the Maastricht treaty.
