Description This book takes as its point of departure nine examples of Korean woman artists and proceeds to explore different grounds of theoretical issues that lie on the blurring boundaries of art history, criticism, theory, and philosophy. Ideas that are taken accounted into include localisation of culture, modernity outside the context of the West, Korean (art) history, feminism and art, as well as the role of women artists in the contemporary capitalist art world.
