Monica Ross - Ethical Actions. A Critical Fine Art Practice

Edited by Suzanne Treister & Susan Hiller


Monica Ross (1950-2013) left behind forty years of socially engaged, feminist and performative artwork, which has had a deep effect on contemporary art and society. This publication documents Ross’s works from 1970-2013, including early feminist collaborative works, drawings made at Greenham Common Women’s Peace Camp, poster designs for the anti-nuclear movement, works relating to the writing of Walter Benjamin and documentation from the sixty performances of Anniversary – an act of memory (2008-2013) which concluded with a final collaborative performance at the UN in Geneva on the day of Ross’s death. With essays by Esther Leslie, Eric Levi Jacobson, Alexandra M.Kokoli, Denise Robinson and Yve Lomax
