The essays, artistic pieces, and interviews gathered in this anthology explore both the role of art and visual culture as well as artistic practices in contemporary feminist movements. The art historians, literary scholars, artists, activists, and students and scholars of American Studies included in this collection examine contemporary art and artivism and its capacity to inspire change, reformulate feminist ideas, and reimagine feminist aesthetics. With contributions by young scholars, students, activists, and artists, the collection seeks to display a broad range of perspectives. Recurring themes are the ambivalent labeling of art and artistic or activist practices as ‘feminist’ as well as the role of intersectionality in feminism and art. This edited volume brings together the diverse strands of thought and practice that contemporary feminist art and culture embrace and hopes to contribute to ongoing discussions at the intersection of art and feminist politics.
