Martha Wilson Sourcebook: 40 Years of Reconsidering Performance, Feminism, Alternative Spaces

Artist/Author: Martha Wilson | Editor: Martha Wilson | Reference: P2125 | ISBN: 978-0-916365-85-1 | Type: Publication

Martha Wilson Sourcebook is the first in a new publication series by ICI that offers a fresh perspective on social, political, and cultural issues impacting artists’ practices. Each compendium is comprised of articles, letters, newspaper cuttings, extracts from books, and images that an artist selects from their own archive and annotates with personal commentaries on the themes that arise. By using this subjective approach as a lens through which to rediscover pivotal debates in art and reconsider seminal texts, as well as to introduce little-known or out-of-print material, the Sourcebook series places emphasis on the histories and theories that have had a formative influence on an artist’s thought process.
