What a Girl Wants – What a Girl Needs
Pernilla Ellens (Ed.)
Because feminism has suddenly become a fashionable commodity, we’re in desperate need of a more inclusive and varied reflection on contemporary girlhood, cross-cultural feminism, and the relationship between gender, politics, and philosophy. Sense and Sensibility wishes to explore oppositions and contradictions between objects and subjects, between gender identities, and between theory and visual modes of culture here and now. A book that works as part reader and part exhibition document presents the thought processes of four female artists points of view. It features a collection of autonomous work, research outcomes, reflections, essays, interviews, columns, letters, and notes on contemporary feminism by a variety of artists and academics, writers, rioteers, curators and journalists. Artists included are Mandy Roos, Gabriel Ann Maher, Olle Lundin, Janina Frye, Roberto Perez de Gayo and Carly Rose Bedford. With essays by Nina Power, Charlotte van Buylaere, Alicja Melzacka, Aynouk Tan, Barbara Bolt, Ece Canlı, and Luiza Prado de O. Martins.
