Mapping Gender: Bodies and Sexualities in Contemporary Art Across the Global South
Publication accompanying the exhibition of the same title, presented at the School of Arts and Aesthetics, Jawaharlal Nehru University, New Delhi, from 17 November to 3 December 2013. 'This book explores the ways contemporary artists across India, and the global South, work with issues of gender in their art. Recent furore over three incidences of brutalization of women in New Delhi and Bombay prompted the inaugural class of curatorial practice at Jawaharlal Nehru University to highlight art's power to address and amplify urgent concerns, and to spotlight the broader context of historical and still prevalent gender-based violence. This contemporary art project aims to probe the intersections of the social, political, and cultural considerations of gender.' - from the back cover

Other artists: Zanele Muholi (South Africa), Teresa Serrano (Mexico/USA)
