Short description:

Initiating a dialogue between the network of women's museums and feminist practices in curating, this volume gathers different perspectives from art historians, artists, curators, historians, educators, human rights activists, museum directors, scholars, and theorists. It juxtaposes essays, interviews, email dialogues, and excerpts from the transcripts of two symposia on Women:Museum hosted at the Vienna City Library and at the Meran Women's Museum. Resulting in a contemporary transnational historiography, this compendium charts issues of feminist strategies in and out of the museum, and examines public engagement through curatorial activism.
