About this product Product Information In this important book, noted Harvard scholar Susan Suleiman explores the politics as well as the aesthetics of modern and postmodern writing and art, from Dada and Surrealism to the present.
She asks: What place do women artists and writers have in the avant-garde? Central to Suleiman's revisionary theory of the avant-garde is the figure of the playful, laughing mother. True to the radically irreverent spirit of the historical avant-gardes and their postmodernist successors, Suleiman's laughing mother embodies one possible link between symbolic innovation and political and social change.
It was in this context — and in the context of the generalized exclusion of women and minority artists from museums and galleries — that the legendary collective ASCO broke into the scene in the early s. My goal is to understand how these structures are retooled and redeployed by a female artist working in Los Angeles in the wake of racially motivated police repression and the Vietnam war.
Her contemporary Claude Cahun, better known as a photographer, also wrote feminist tales.
What seems outdated? What, if anything, has been accomplished?

Suleiman concludes that ''a woman can be politically radical, artistically innovative, and yet a mother. The union of mother and play is also a solution to the Oedipus complex, whose importance Ms. Suleiman likes to underplay.
I'd like to be notified of new arrivals in the following categories.
While she wonders aloud whether ''the 'real' logic of Oedipus'' is ''the elimination of the mother, and a fortiori of female subjectivity,'' its logic is actually the one represented in her own positive image of the mother playing. Woman as both maternal and erotic, as Ms. Suleiman imagines her, is precisely the double image of women that the concept of the Oedipus complex requires of boys and girls alike. This is a deep and moving insight, and one that Ms.
