Top Girls - (Un) Doing Feminism

Artist/Author: Angela McRobbie | Reference: A0541 | Type: Article

From a lecture given on 7 November 2011 at the Ludwig-Maximilians-Universitat Munchen, and on 1 December 2011 at the Freie Universitat Berlin, Top Girls focuses on media images, since the late 1990s, which were intended to provoke some, imagined group of (always humourless) feminists. These images appeared, in a celebratory fashion, to reverse the clock, turning it back to some earlier pre-feminist moment, while at the same time doing so in a rather tongue-in-cheek kind of way. The prevailing use of irony seemed to exonerate the culprits from the crime of offending against what was caricatured as a kind of extreme, and usually man-hating feminism, while at the same time acknowledging that other, more acceptable, forms of feminism, had by now entered into the realms of common sense and were broadly acceptable.

Where is Ana Mendieta? Identity, Performativity, and Exile

Artist/Author: Jane Blocker | Reference: P2124 | ISBN: 978-0-8223-2324-2 | Type: Publication

Taken from banners carried in a 1992 protest outside the Guggenheim Museum, the title phrase 'Where is Ana Mendieta?' evokes not only the suspicious and tragic circumstances surrounding her death but also the conspicuous absence of women artists from high-profile exhibitions. Drawing on the work of such theorists as Judith Butler, Joseph Roach, Edward Said, and Homi Bhabha, Jane Blocker discusses the power of Mendieta's earth-and-body art to alter, unsettle, and broaden terms of identity itself.
