”A unique anthology of 35 feminist art manifestos by contemporary women artists from around the world (1969-2013), introduced by Katy Deepwell. These feminist art manifestos written at different moments over the last forty years explore the potential of women’s cultural production as visual artists. Manifestos occupy a specific place in the visual arts, as a means to communicate radical ideas. These texts outline a critique of patriarchy and utopian hopes for the future.”

What is a manifesto? A political programme, a declaration, a definitive statement of belief. Neither institutional mission statement, nor religious dogma; neither a poem, nor a book. As a form of literature, manifestos occupy a specific place in the history of public discourse as a means to communicate radical ideas. Distributed as often ephemeral documents, as leaflets or pamphlets in political campaigns or as announcements of the formation of new parties or new avant-gardes, manifestos above all declare what its authors are for and against, and ask people who read them to join them, to understand, to share these ideas. The feminist art manifestos in this anthology do all of these things as they explore the potential and possibilities of women’s cultural production as visual artists.
