The first publication to address queer feminist politics, methods and theories in relation to the visual arts, including new media, installation and performance art. Despite the crucial contribution of considerations of 'queer' to feminism in other disciplines of the humanities, and the strong impact of feminist art history on queer visual theory, a visible and influential queer feminist art history has remained elusive.
The ‘do-it-yourself’ artwork: Participation from Fluxus to new mediaThis volume consists of fifteen essays by art historians, critics and curators, which are divided into three sections. Part 1 addresses the emergence of spectator participation in the 1960s, whilst Part 2 brings together in-depth case studies of specific participatory practices in the 1960s, 1970s and 1990s, analysing the issues that they raise in their very modes of operation. The more general critical essays in Part 3 map out a range of theoretical approaches to the ‘do-it-yourself’ artwork.
