Abstract

This Third Text special issue addresses feminist art and theory, and global studies that share a tendency to ‘think across’ disciplines, gender, place or materiality. The selected articles explore women's artistic practices in terms of ‘trans-figurations’ – material forms of thought operating across gender, place and belonging. Home is a natural place of belonging, but if conceptualised within the politics of domesticity and ideologies of nationhood and citizenship, it becomes apparent as a powerful construct both born out of the production of space and yet enabling the questioning of the same. The objective of the issue is to activate thinking about home, identity and space in a transnational perspective drawing upon contemporary feminist discourse and scholarship.
