'Unmarked is a controversial analysis of the fraught relation between political and representational visibility in contemporary culture. Written from and for the Left, Unmarked rethinks the claims of visibility politics through a feminist psychoanalytic examination of specific performance texts — including photography, painting, film, theatre and anti-abortion-demonstrations.' (Excerpt from back cover)
