Feminist avant-garde : art of the 1970s : the Sammlung Verbund Collection, Vienna by Gabriele Schor( Book )

2 editions published in 2016 in English and held by 201 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"With greater energy than any artistic movement before, the feminist avant-garde of the 1970s deconstructed society's image of womanhood, dismantling centuries' worth of projections, stereotypes, and male hegemony. For the first time in the history of art, women, in an act of collective consciousness-raising, took the representation of their sex in visual art into their own hands and unfolded a wide spectrum of self-determined female identities: provocative and radical, poetic and ironic. Gabriele Schor, director of the Sammlung Verbund Collection, coined the term the Feminist Avant-Garde in order to highlight the pioneering achievements of these artists. This book presents over six hundred works in the Sammlung Verbund Collection created by forty-eight women artists. Established in Vienna in 2004 by VERBUND AG, Austria's leading electricity provider and one of the largest producers of hydropower in Europe, the collection has two main foci: "Perceptions of Spaces and Places" and the "Feminist Avant-Garde of the 1970s"

I'm a real photographer : Keith Arnatt, photographs 1974-2002 by Keith Arnatt( Book )

8 editions published in 2007 in English and held by 100 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Born in Oxford in 1930 and now retired, Keith Arnatt led a life as an artist that falls into two distinct parts. In the late 1960s his iconoclastic performances, sculptures and texts, challenging the tenets of 'art', established him as an influential Conceptual artist. But then in the mid 1970s, in an act defying the prevailing values of the art world, Arnatt chose to become a photographer instead. Over the following 28 years he immersed himself in the history of photography, making progressive photo series in the immediate vicinity of his home in South Wales." "Nineteen series of photographs are featured here in the first comprehensive account of Arnatt's photography. Accompanying 160 of Arnatt's photographs reproduced here is a personal account of Arnatt's journey by David Hurn - Magnum photographer, author and Arnatt's close friend and colleague. With a forward by Brett Rogers - Director of The Photographers' Gallery, and an illustrated contextual essay exploring the links between his Conceptual art and his photography, by Clare Grafik - curator of The Photographer's Gallery."--Jacket

Under the influence : John Deakin, photography and the lure of Soho by Robin Muir( Book )

3 editions published in 2014 in English and held by 99 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Considered to be one of the greatest of postwar British photographers, Deakin was renowned for his penetrating portraits, haunting street scenes and striking fashion work. Though he flourished briefly at Vogue, it was the lure of nearby Soho with its pubs, clubs and subterranean watering holes that captured his interest most. Loved and loathed in equal measure by friends and drinking companions, Deakin was a legendary member of the quarter's maverick crowd of artists, writers, poets and assorted characters and misfits. As its most famous chronicler with a camera, he is inextricably linked to Soho's bohemian heyday in the two decades following the War.
