This illustrated volume addresses aspects of Neshat's work in relation to the body, showing the tensions between the experience of women and the cultural meanings that are inscribed on the female body. Indeed, for Neshat and many other feminist writers and artists, the female body is a symbol and a battlefield where different rhetorical and political ideologies are discussed."
