Vol 28, Number 2, p.72
This paper begins by providing a brief introduction to Foucault’s work on the body. In the next section it reviews the feminist encounter with Foucault’s work focusing on the political technology of the body before examining feminist appropriations of Foucault and the relation between aesthetics and the body. In the final section of the paper, I make some preliminary remarks about the relation of body theory to art education.
