With its broad definition of the political, this book features chapters on post-colonialism, feminism, the anti-war movement, environmentalism, gay rights and globalization. It charts how individual artworks reverberated with enormous idealogical shifts. While emphasizing the West, Art and Politics takes global developments into account as well - looking at art production practiced by postcolonial African, Latin American and Middle Eastern artists. Its case-study approach to the subject provides the reader with an overview of a most complex subject.
