Summary:
Contrary to critics who have called it the "undecade", the 1970s were a time of risky, innovative art - and nowhere more so than in Britain, where the forces of feminism and labor politics merged in a radical new aesthetic. In 'Art Labor, Sex Politics' Siona Wilson investigates the charged relationship of sex and labor politics as it played out in the making of feminist art in 1970s Britain. Her sustained  Read more...

In \'Art Labor, Sex Politics\' Siona Wilson investigates the charged relationship of sex and labor politics as it played out in the making of feminist art in 1970s Britain. Her sustained exploration of works of experimental film, installation, performance, and photography maps the intersection of feminist and leftist projects in the artistic practices of this heady period.0Collective practice, grassroots activism, and iconoclastic challenges to society\'s sexual norms are all fundamental elements of this theoretically informed history. The book provides fresh assessments of key feminist figures and introduces readers to less widely known artists such as Jo Spence and controversial groups like COUM Transmissions. Wilson\'s interpretations of two of the best-known (and infamous) exhibitions of feminist art - Mary Kelly\'s \'Post-Partum Document\' and COUM Transmissions\' \'Prostitution\' - supply a historical context that reveals these works anew. Together these analyses demonstrate that feminist attention to sexual difference, sex, and psychic formation reconfigures received categories of labor and politics.0How - and how much - do sexual politics transform our approach to aesthetic debates? What effect do the tropes of sexual difference and labor have on the very conception of the political within cultural practice? These are the questions that animate \'Art Labor, Sex Politics\' as it illuminates an intense and influential decade of intellectual and artistic experimentation.<\/span>\" ;\u00A0\u00A0\u00A0\nschema:exampleOfWork<\/a> <http:\/\/worldcat.org\/entity\/work\/id\/2219525133<\/a>> ;\u00A0\u00A0\u00A0\nschema:inLanguage<\/a> \"en<\/span>\" ;\u00A0\u00A0\u00A0\nschema:name<\/a> \"Art labor, sex politics : feminist effects in 1970s British art and performance<\/span>\" ;\u00A0\u00A0\u00A0\nschema:numberOfPages<\/a> \"288<\/span>\" ;\u00A0\u00A0\u00A0\nschema:productID<\/a> \"995190686<\/span>\" ;\u00A0\u00A0\u00A0\nschema:publication<\/a> <http:\/\/www.worldcat.org\/title\/-\/oclc\/995190686#PublicationEvent\/minneapolis_minn_univ_of_minnesota_press_2015<\/a>> ;\u00A0\u00A0\u00A0\nschema:publisher<\/a> <http:\/\/experiment.worldcat.org\/entity\/work\/data\/2219525133#Agent\/univ_of_minnesota_press<\/a>> ; # Univ. of Minnesota Press<\/span>\n\u00A0\u00A0\u00A0\nschema:workExample<\/a> <http:\/\/worldcat.org\/isbn\/9780816685738<\/a>> ;\u00A0\u00A0\u00A0\nwdrs:describedby<\/a> <http:\/\/www.worldcat.org\/title\/-\/oclc\/995190686<\/a>> ;\u00A0\u00A0\u00A0\u00A0.\n\n\n<\/div>\n\n
