Abstract

Feminist Actions presents various subjective, identity-based renditions of past and present cultural symbols such as the cowboy, the debutante, the narcissist and the female rock/pop star. Power, beauty and fame are treated with critical distance in an endeavour to explore current modes of feminist politics in contemporary art and discourse. Ambiguity and playfulness are key themes in Feminist Actions with the title giving an ironic nod to the ‘right-on’ feminist actions of the 1970s.
