Feminisms have played a crucial part in art, art history and curatorial practices over the last forty years. Hence, it is by now imperative to scrutinize the history of feminist theories and methods within both fields. Feminisms is Still Our Name is an anthology that critically debates the current status of feminisms in visual art and its relation to past art histories and possible feminist futures. It brings together essays by leading scholars in order to meet the urgent need both for a critical historiography and for re-vitalizations of feminist practices within written as well as visual narratives of modern and contemporary art. From a variety of perspectives, the editors and contributors to this book initiate a much-needed debate about possible strategies for a renewal of feminisms in art history and curating. At the same time, it demonstrates the necessity of further explorations and research into the diversity of feminist pasts. Indeed, this volume provides strong arguments that historiographical critique is an inevitable part of any future feminism(s). In providing fresh approaches to such important fields as feminist art history and feminist curating, the essays assembled in Feminisms is Still Our Name will provoke fruitful discussion about the relation between academic and curatorial feminist practices. Contributors: Renee Baert, Malin Hedlin Hayden, Lolita Jablonskiene, Amelia Jones, Mary Kelly, Griselda Pollock, and Jessica Sjoholm Skrubbe.
