Feminism in the art of women artists born after 1970


The problem of women's status in society is still valid. In many countries there is still a lot to improve on. Feminist art showed up in a radical way in the 70's in Western Europe and the USA. It undertook problems that are still valid till today. Even if the law guarantees equality of men and women, we still cope with cultural customs that deny it. Depending on the country, women status is different, and what is reflected in the art of women differs also. We would like to check, how forms of feminist art evolve based on the examples of works of subsequent generations of women artists. Which topics are still of current interest, which ceased to be so? Have new questions arisen? What strategies are contemporary women artists appliying?

Collected material together with the texts of scholars who deal with the subject is going to be published separately.
