Art, Politics & Activism #2: The Body, Gender & Identity Since the 1960s, various artists have increasingly dealt with issues on the intersection of politics, the body, gender and identity. These artists include – but are not limited to – feminists, people of colour and LGBTQI+ people. One of this lecture’s key artists is the performance artist and body builder Cassils (Canada, year unknown), who uses the body in a sculptural form, addressing feminism, body art and gay male aesthetics.
