"A major inspiration for the project was the tendency by some in the media to describe particular women as ‘the most dangerous woman in’ Scotland, or the UK, or the world.", Jo Shaw, editor 'The Art of Being Dangerous'
and kaleidoscopic collection of feminist visual and literary art
The idea that women are dangerous – individually or collectively – runs throughout history and across cultures. Behind this label lies a significant set of questions about the dynamics, conflicts, identities and power relations with which women live today.
The Art of Being Dangerous offers many different images of women, some humorous,
some challenging, some well-known, some forgotten, but all unique. In a
dazzling variety of creative forms, artists and writers of diverse identities
explore what it means to be a dangerous woman.
With almost 100 evocative images, this collection
showcases an array of contemporary art that highlights the staggering breadth
of talent among today’s female artists. It offers an unparalleled gallery of feminist
creativity, ranging from emerging visual artists from the UK to
multi-award-winning writers and translators from the Global South.
