This book explores the work of renowned artist/ photographer Shirin Neshat's work relating to the body. Throughout her extensive career, since she broke onto the international art scene in 1994 with her Women of Allah series, Shirin Neshat's work has developed around the condition of Muslim women, oscillating between a search for cultural identity and the contradictions that arise through historical immersion in the complex existence of exile. This superbly illustrated volume addresses aspects of Neshat's work in relation to the body, showing the tensions between the experience of women and the cultural meanings that are inscribed on the female body. Indeed, for Neshat and many other feminist writers and artists, the female body is a symbol and a battlefield where different rhetorical and political ideologies are discussed.
