Feminine Moments' newsletter - art books

October 2018

Edited by Birthe Havmoeller

Dear Reader,

As both Tate Modern and MOMA are cutting corners these days by linking from their website to artist biographies on Wikipedia, I am happy to see new fine publications about or by lesbian/queer feminist artists are still being made. The world has not gone all digital yet. I may have neglected the presentation of new art books by lesbian and queer feminist women artists in the earlier issues of the Newsletter this year, but in this issue I have made a 'comeback' with several posts about art and photography books. Enjoy the videos with a look inside some of the books.
