Find 1171+ MA/PhD theses on feminist art since 1974

n.paradoxa has a new searchable list of 1171 MA and PhD theses on feminist art/contemporary women artists in 35 countries (1974-present). The list contains links to information pages with abstracts in Open Access Repositories, and full text PDFs.  Go to : www.ktpress.co.uk/feminist-art-theses.asp

Given the growing number of MAs and PhDs available in electronic form, we wanted to provide an accessible route to this research on contemporary women artists and feminist art. Careful searching of this project also highlights many trends and tendencies in feminist research across different countries.

This project does not captures “all” theses written on this subject, but is the result of wide searching online. Information about some of the publications which have resulted from this research is also available.

If your thesis, or your students’ thesis, is not listed: please add using the form on our website.

We are aware that there are many art schools or Universities in the world where students may have conducted research into feminist art, but the institutions have not joined any electronic thesis collection or database system. We were also limited by the languages we speak and would welcome more in other languages from around the world.

This project was created by Frances Hatherley and Katy Deepwell at Middlesex University between Jan-May 2015.

In this major new ebook, Judy Freya Sibayan reflects on 39 years of her work as an artist, curator, writer, editor of Ctrl+P and teacher. Inspired by Hélène Cixous, the figure of HerMe(s) is invoked for a new kind of artistic autobiography, extensively hyperlinked to the internet and an art practice, evident in major works like Scapular Gallery and Museum of Mental Objects, which developed from her development of a distinctive form of institutional critique.
Judy Freya Sibayan is based in the Philippines. She is the editor of the contemporary art journal, Ctrl+P. Her work was included in the Gwangju Biennale (2002) and in Hans Ulrich Obrist and Hou Hanru’s exhibition Cities on the Move (1997).

Feminist Art Manifestos: An Anthology

New electronic book from KT press
Katy Deepwell (ed.)
Feminist Art Manifestos: An Anthology

What is a manifesto? A political programme, a declaration, a definitive statement of belief. Neither institutional mission statement, nor religious dogma; neither a poem, nor a book. As a form of literature, manifestos occupy a specific place in the history of public discourse as a means to communicate radical ideas. Distributed as often ephemeral documents, as leaflets or pamphlets in political campaigns or as announcements of the formation of new parties or new avant-gardes, manifestos above all declare what its authors are for and against, and ask people who read them to join them, to understand, to share these ideas. The feminist art manifestos in this anthology do all of these things as they explore the potential and possibilities of women’s cultural production as visual artists…..
