30 credits, Level 7 (Masters)

Spring teaching

From the 1970s onwards, women artists, curators and cultural theorists have actively intervened in contemporary politics. In contesting images of women and representations of the gendered body, they have challenged regimes of power and knowledge. In this course you will consider the role of gender in critical writing as well as in art practice.
