Genealogies or cartographies of feminist art
Feminist art practices have a 40 year history. How we speak about this history will define how we understand these practices and feminisms’ contributions to art either in terms of a movement, a radical politics or an ongoing problematic. What frameworks do we routinely use to describe the multiplicity of strategies, the shifts in emphasis over time, the variety of art forms  and the global dimensions of this history and how do these constrain or liberate how we think about feminisms today? This seminar will look at some key examples of these frameworks – generational/geo-political, post-colonial, post-postmodern, third world feminist as well as into new critiques of the glosses/citation practices feminists themselves have used to describe progress, loss and return in the narratives of feminism (defined by Claire Hemmings, 2011).
