In the 1970s, Wilkes work -- particularly the way that she used the body in her artistic practices -- was considered controversial by many feminist critics. Today, however, when theoretical and artistic strategies have changed and when art is increasingly cognizant of social context, Wilkes work has found rightful place among the most important artwork of the past thirty years. This catalogue presents a unique survey of Wilkes oeuvre, with reproductions of her videos and films four essays focusing on different aspects of her life and work, including a detailed biography, and a selected biography, a complete list of her works and an exhibition checklist.
