Siona Wilson investigates the charged relationship of sex and labour politics as it played out in the making of feminist art in 1970s Britain.
Primarily concerned with the feminist body as a site for making and exhibiting works, this book examines themes that look at the body as material, the body and performance, as well as the alternative creative platforms in 1970s feminist art. Drawing on original material – never-before-seen images from artists’ personal collections and commissioned interviews with prominent artists from the period – the book is an invaluable resource for artists, researchers, curators and students interested in recovering this period from the margins of art history.
