feminist aesthetics

Discipline: Art

(1970s)

Belief that oppressive social conditions have blurred the idea of 'women's art' throughout the history of European culture. Recent feminist art aims to put forward a specifically female consciousness.

Favored media are non-traditional, such as ready mades, collages and performances.
