Book Launch

FREE

Angela Dimitrakaki discusses the issues raised in her recent book Gender, ArtWork and the Global Imperative (Manchester University Press) with Larne Abse Gogarty. Representing a new wave of feminist critique that considers global capitalism's impact on gender divides, the book under discussion makes connections between broader social debates and art. Issues addressed range from the rise of female collectives, travel as a gendered form of work and transformations in Eastern Europe to globalisation's 'bad boys' and the need for a renewed alliance between Marxism and feminism.
