About this book

This book explores the work and careers of women, trans, and third-gender artists engaged in political activism. While some artists negotiated their own political status in their indigenous communities, others responded to global issues of military dictatorship, racial discrimination, or masculine privilege in regions other than their own. Women, trans, and third-gender artists continue to highlight and challenge the disturbing legacies of colonialism, imperialism, capitalism, communism, and other political ideologies that are correlated with patriarchy, primogeniture, sexism, or misogyny. The book argues that solidarity among such artists remains valuable and empowering for those who still seek legitimate recognition in art schools, cultural institutions, and the history curriculum.

Reviews

“This collection engages with vital, separate yet interrelated themes of feminism, activism, and art praxis. It revisits feminist theorizing to combine a critical understanding of the past with present struggles around a more capacious notion of gender, speaking to a broad spectrum of scholars and practitioners.” (Monica Juneja, Professor of Global Art History, Heidelberg University)

“This important book complicates and expands the feminist discourse on political engagement. The project becomes even more compelling with the significant inclusion of gender non-conforming, non-binary, and trans artists whose marginalization fueled an activism, or artivism as the editors write, that raises provocative questions which need to be aired. With its mixture of diverse voices addressing a range of issues from colonialism to race and gender identity, this anthology will be invaluable for scholars and students alike.” (Mona Hadler, Professor at Brooklyn College and the Graduate Center, CUNY, USA)
