This book examines feminist art of the 1970s through contemporary art made by women. In a series of readings of artworks by, amongst others, Tracey Emin, Vanessa Beecroft, Hannah Wilke and Carolee Schneemann the reader is taken on a journey through maternal desire, fantasies of escape and failed femininity.
Clare Johnson is Senior Lecturer in Visual Culture at the Faculty of Creative Arts, Humanities and Education, University of the West of England, UK. She has written a number of articles for international journals and is on the editorial board for the Journal of Gender Studies.
