Abstract

This chapter considers the return to visibility, after nearly 30 years, of the work of Pauline Boty, British Pop Artist. It explores why not only the mainstream histories of Pop but also feminist art history, understood as part of a historically located political project, have been unwilling (or unable) to accommodate her and other women Pop artists. It then explores the ways in which Boty’s work, positioned within certain reconfigured art historical genealogies, enables a re-framing of the problematic relationship women have with mass culture and addresses some of feminism’s current needs.
