Guerrilla Girls: The Art of Behaving Badly

Chronicle

Regular price $30.00

In 1985, a group of masked feminist avengers — known as the Guerrilla Girls — papered downtown Manhattan with posters calling out the Museum of Modern Art for its lack of representation of female artists. They quickly became a global phenomenon and the fearless activists have produced hundreds of posters, stickers, and billboards ever since.

The first book to catalog the group's entire career (from 1985 to the present) explores all their provocative street campaigns, unforgettable media appearances, and large-scale exhibitions. Captions by the Guerrilla Girls themselves contextualize the visuals and each copy comes with a punch-out gorilla mask that invites readers to step up and join the movement themselves.

More than a monograph, this book is a call to arms.
