Fetishism and the stories of feminist art.

Kokoli, Alexandra M.


Alexandra M. Kokoli


Feminism in art history finds itself at an interesting intersection. Having long lost its links to activism, and with much of poststructuralist and psychoanalytic theory (on which it drew, and which it irreversibly transformed) now seemingly depleted of their radical potential, feminism in art history—and art— takes stock and looks to the future. If the mostly justifiably maligned prefix “post-” before feminism is to be redeemed for the present, it would have to be redefined as an internal break within feminist thinking that allows feminism itself to become the object of historical and theoretical investigations, even revisions.
