'Sexuality traces how and why identifications of art with sexual expression or repression arose, and how the terms have shifted in tandem with artistic and theoretical debates, from the rights movements era to the present. Among the subjects it discusses are abjection and the informe, or formless; pornography and the obscene; the "performativity" of sexuality and gender; and sexuality's role in forging radical artistic practices in response to such topical issues as anti-feminism and state-led repression.' - from back cover.
