"Object-Oriented Feminism will be of particular interest for readers in feminist theory, philosophy and poststructuralism as they intersect with curatorial and art practices, and thus also being interesting for artists, curators and cultural workers navigating their ways in the worlds of theory and philosophy."-Identities: Journal for Gender, Politics and Culture "Taking on object-oriented ontologies and speculative realism, the authors of these essays are not shy in reestablishing feminist theory as a primary resource for thinking about objects, things and environments. The editor, Katherine Behar, offers a brilliant introduction to object-oriented feminism and the encounter it stages with current philosophical trends."-Patricia Ticineto Clough, author of Autoaffection and coeditor of Beyond Biopolitics
