Product Description

Guerrilla Girls: The Art of Behaving Badly is the first book to catalogue the entire career of the Guerrilla Girls from 1985 to present.

The Guerrilla girls are a collective of political feminist artists who expose discrimination and corruption in art, film, politics, and pop culture all around the world.

This book explores all their provocative
 street campaigns, unforgettable media appearances, and large-scale exhibitions.

  • Each copy comes with a punch-out gorilla mask that invites readers to step up and join the movement themselves.
  • Captions by the Guerrilla Girls themselves contextualize the visuals.
  • Explores their well-researched, intersectional takedown of the patriarchy
In 1985, a group of masked feminist avengers known as the Guerrilla Girls papered downtown Manhattan with posters calling out the Museum of Modern Art for its lack of representation of female artists.

They quickly became a global phenomenon, and the fearless activists have produced hundreds of posters, stickers, and billboards ever since.
  • More than a monograph, this book is a call to arms.
  • This career-spanning volume is published to coincide with their 35th anniversary.
  • Perfect for artists, art lovers, feminists, fans of the Guerrilla Girls, students, and activists
  • Add it to the shelf with books like Wall and Piece by Banksy, Why We March: Signs of Protest and Hope by Artisan, and Graffiti Women: Street Art from Five Continents by Nicholas Ganz

In their 30-year history, they have created over 100 street campaigns in cities all over the world, including New York, Los Angeles, Minneapolis, Mexico City, Istanbul, London, Bilbao, Rotterdam, and Shanghai. The Guerrilla Girls have held exhibitions and collaborated with the Whitney Museum in New York, Tate Modern in London, and over 30 other institutions.
