Introduction

About this topic: Questioning Nationalism

In these works, women artists critique and question nationalism in their own countries. The political and visual rhetoric of nationalism is examined, especially in terms of its exclusions, its construction of forms of masculinity. Women's participation as citizens supporting this rhetoric is also examined.
