Abstract

Feminist Visions in Video Art: from Wonder Woman to Miss Universe

This paper discusses the influence of feminism on three video works from the 1960s and 1970s in the USA and one in Sweden during the 1990s. For women artists one of the main issues was to be able to describe their own reality and to document it. New subjects and themes were explored in art. Humour and irony were often used in the struggle for women's rights, female representation and a critique of academy and society.
