This discussion draws inspiration from Judith Bernstein's work in order to examine the complex relations between artistic critiques of international and social conflict, feminism, and the body as a theme or material. Indeed, while Bernstein employs sexual imagery to stress the relation between military and gendered forms of violence, other artists share some of the concerns of the American artist but engage with the body in a more abstract manner.

Hillary Robinson is Dean of the School of Art and Design at Middlesex University. The relationship between feminist thinking and art is one of her central research interests — she has published Feminism-Art-Theory 1968-2000: an AnthologyReading Art, Reading Irigaray: the Politics of Art by Women and Visibly Female: Women and Art Today, among others. Professor Robinson is currently working on a new edition of the Feminism-Art-Theoryanthology as well as on a history of the feminist art movement.

Vivienne Jabri is Professor of International Politics and Coordinator of the Centre for the Study of Political Community at King's College. Her research draws on critical and poststructural social and political theory to investigate the relations between international politics and war, specifically how war and interventionist practices relate to sovereignty, political community and subjectivity. Professor Jabri is also interested in the relations between art, aesthetic theory and politics.

Participating artist to be confirmed.
