Along with pain, fear and death, the emergence of AIDS in the 1980s brought about an ‘epidemic of meaning’: a crisis of representation that required new alliances between art and activism to intervene in the public sphere and demand other political, medical and informative ways of addressing the disease.

In this book, the French critic Élisabeth Lebovici offers an alternative view of art history based on feminisms, queer politics and LGTBIQ activisms.
