Where is Ana Mendieta? Identity, Performativity, and Exile

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.
