It was 1985 when the original Guerrilla Girls papered downtown Manhattan with posters calling out the Museum of Modern Art for its lack of representation of female artists. Ever since, these masked feminist avengers have produced hundreds of posters, stickers, billboards, and books, all critiquing the lack of diversity in art, film, politics, and pop culture.
Guerilla Girls: The Art of Behaving Badly is the first book to catalog their entire wild career from 1985 to the present, documenting every provocative street campaign, unforgettable media appearance, and large-scale exhibition. Captions by the Guerrilla Girls themselves contextualise the visuals and elaborate on their well-researched, intersectional takedown of the art world and the dominant culture. More than a monograph, this book is a call to arms – each copy comes with a punch-out gorilla mask that invites readers to step up and join the movement themselves.
