VENICE AGENDAS : RENEGOTIATING THE BODY
Kathy Battista, author of renegotiating the body: Feminist Art in 1970's London will be in conversation Anna Moszynska and Bobby Baker discussing issues around her recent book.
Sotheby's Consultant Lecturer for MA Contemporary Art Anna Moszynska and performance artist Bobby Baker interview author Kathy Battista on the occasion of the launch of Battista's book, Re-negotiating the Body: Feminist Art in 1970's London.
Re-negotiating the Body tackles the difficult question of what defines art as "feminist art?" Focusing her research on the body as medium, Battista's book incorporates both original images and in-depth interviews from artists prominent in the 70s.
