Attend in person
Reclaiming the representation of the female body; giving a new definition to the aesthetic aims of art which represents all bodies: this is the radical heritage of feminist art, and the terrain of Art Monsters, a landmark book by Lauren Elkin. Described by Deborah Levy as ‘the Susan Sontag of her generation’, Elkin accompanies us into a world of ‘unruly bodies’. In conversation with Katrina Brown.
