In this major book, Griselda Pollock engages boldly in the culture wars over `what is the canon?` and `what difference can feminism make?` Do we simply reject the all-male line-up and satisfy our need for ideal egos with an all women litany of artistic heroines? Or is the question a chance to resist the phallocentric binary and allow the ambiguities and complexities of desire - subjectivity and sexuality - to shape the readings of art that constantly displace the present gender demarcations?

Ingres Then, and Now is an innovative study of one of the best-known French artists of the nineteenth century, Jean Auguste Dominique Ingres. Adrian Rifkin re-evaluates Ingres' work in the context of a variety of literary, musical and visual cultures which are normally seen as alien to him. Re-viewing Ingres' paintings as a series of fragmentary symptoms of the commodity cultures of nineteenth-century Paris, Adrian Rifkin draws the artist away from his familiar association with the Academy and the Salon. Rifkin sets out to show how, by thinking of the historical archive as a form of the unconscious, we can renew our understanding of nineteenth-century conservative or academic cultures by reading them against their 'other'. He situates Ingres in the world of the Parisian Arcades, as represented by Walter Benjamin, and examines the effect of this juxtaposition on how we think of Benjamin himself, following Ingres' image in popular cultures of the twentieth century. Rifkin then returns to the late eighteenth and early nineteenth centuries to find traces of the emergence of bizarre symptoms in Ingres' early work, symptoms which open him to a variety of conflicting readings and appropriations. It concludes by examining his importance for the great French art critic Jean Cassou on the one hand, and in making a bold, contemporary gay appropriation on the other. Ingres Then, and Now transforms the popular image we have of Ingres. It argues that the figure of the artist is neither fixed in time or place - there is neither an essential man named Ingres, nor a singular body of his work - but is an effect of many, complex and overlapping historical effects.

Wie stehen Kunst und weibliche Emanzipation in Zusammenhang? Mit einem Spannungsbogen von den hochpolitischen Anfängen feministischer Künstlerinnenausstellungen am Anfang der 1970er Jahre bis zu deren subversiven Ausläufern Mitte der 1980er Jahre stellt Monika Kaiser internationale Projekte wie Womanhouse (Judy Chicago), Magna Feminismus und Kunst mit Eigen-Sinn (Valie Export) sowie sechs weitere exemplarische Ausstellungen in einen neuen, am Raum orientierten Bedeutungszusammenhang. Unveröffentlichtes Quellenmaterial ermöglicht die Rekonstruktion konkreter Ausstellungsräume und gibt Einblick in einen bislang unterschätzten Teil emanzipatorischer Ausstellungskultur.
