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.

Élisabeth Lebovici

Art et  activisme à la fin du XXè siècle (2017), and co-author, with Catherine Gonnard, of Femmes/artistes, Artistes/femmes, Paris de 1880 à nos jours (2007).

THIS PUBLICATION IS PART OF EDUCATION FROM BELOW, A PROJECT SUPPORTED BY THE CREATIVE EUROPE PROGRAMME OF THE EUROPEAN UNION

This is the fourth volume of the et al. collection, a designed to propagate thinking that challenges the disciplinary frameworks of art history, philosophy and the social sciences. An extension of MACBA’s public programme that unfolds at the intersections between aesthetic and political practices, and which addresses an anonymous and dispersed audience: that thinking community that in the very act of reading, writing, studying and conversing becomes a power of future transformation.

The collection of texts included in et al. is an editorial project by MACBA co-published with Arcàdia.
