Issues in feminist art historiography, examining representations of and by women, as well as the political contexts of art production and reception.
This is an introduction to the issues and debates in feminist art historiography placed within a chronological framework. The paper examines representations of and by women, as well as considering the political contexts of art production and reception. Issues around sexuality, censorship and 'the gaze' will also be discussed. Students will also examine examples of approaches to art produced by and about women, focusing, in particular, on 20th-century art and 21st-century art.
