Summary
After 1989, a serious body of knowledge has been produced in the former socialist states as well as in the West that theorizes the notion of gender and gender relations established in state-socialism and in the post-communist era. However, the existing volumes rarely (if ever) pay attention to the construction of femininity and masculinity in visual arts. The Gender Check reader presents, for the first time, an extensive collection of texts that explicitly analyse visual arts created before and after 1989 in the 'other' Europe in terms of gender and feminist theories.
