Description

In conjunction with Kennedy to Kent State: Images of a Generation, examine strategies used by feminist artists during the 60s and 70s. Learn how these approaches have been adopted and rejected by the dominant culture. We'll begin by defining feminism and its inclusiveness of difference, breaking boundaries of race, gender, ethnicity, nationality, sexuality and class. Then, we'll take a look at specific artists from the Feminist Art Movement and conclude with their influence on contemporary artists and visual culture. Weekly readings and dialogue will be included.
