In 1985, a bunch of feminist masked avengers began plastering posters all over downtown New York. They named galleries, museums, critics, collectors, and white male artists who contributed to an art system prejudiced against women and artists of colour. Since then, the collective has produced hundreds of projects exposing bias in art, film, pop culture, and politics. Their unforgettable graphics have become a global phenomenon. This is the first book to document the Guerrilla Girls’ entire ild career of provocative street campaigns, books, performances, large scale exhibitions at museums , and more. The guerrilla Girls contextualise their visuals and elaborate on their intersectional takedown of the patriarchy in their own words throughout the book. This isn’t. a monograph- it’s a call to arms.
