Drawing from the exhibitions and performances presented by If I Can’t Dance during Edition II – Feminist Legacies and Potentials in Contemporary Art Practice (2006-2008), twelve critical thinkers confront twelve artists from the perspective of historical and present-day feminism in art.

Accordingly, twelve collaborative essays reflect on the state and importance of feminism for the practice of art and show how artists today reactivate the past via visual and conceptual ‘homage’ and explore current ideas of political mobilization and engagement.

Conversation Pieces is a fruitful starting point to discuss topics of subjectivity, social roles and the politics of performance.
