Ethical Actions: A Critical Fine Art Practice
Susan Hiller & Suzanne Treister (Eds.)
British artist Monica Ross (1950–2013), a pivotal artist in the 1980s feminist movement, left behind a 40-year body of pioneering and socially engaged performance-driven artwork. Her timeless pieces continue to have a deep effect on contemporary artists and society today. Presented for the first time is this extensively illustrated document of Ross’s works from 1970 to 2013 including Ross’s early feminist collaborative works, drawings made at the Greenham Common Women’s Peace Camp in the 1980s, poster designs for the antinuclear movement, works relating to the writings of Walter Benjamin, and documentation from the sixty performances of Anniversary—an act of memory (2008–13), solo, collective and multilingual recitations from memory of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights, which concluded with a final collaborative performance at the UN in Geneva on the day of Ross’s death. Informative essays by Jorn Ebner, Esther Leslie, Eric Levi Jacobson, Alexandra M. Kokoli, Denise Robinson,Monica Ross and Yve Lomax along with extensive archival documentation by Bernard G. Mills.
