Taking the work of Sanja Iveković as a point of departure to discuss urgent matters in feminism today, Sanja Iveković: Unknown Heroine – A Reader gathers commissioned essays by key feminist voices who contributed to a conference titled ‘23%’*, which was held on the occasion of the exhibition Sanja Iveković: Unknown Heroine, curated by Lina ǅuverović at Calvert 22 Gallery and the South London Gallery (December 2012 – February 2013). The conference took place at the Royal College of Art, London and was organised in collaboration with the Courtauld Institute of Art’s Research Forum.
Sanja Iveković: Unknown Heroine – A Reader is edited by Helena Reckitt, and includes essays by Ivana Bago, Katy Deepwell, Lina ǅuverović, Silvia Eiblmayr, Elisabeth Lebovici, Suzana Milevska and Milica Tomić. Designed by Rafaela Dražić.
This is the first in a new series of publications published by Calvert 22 Foundation.
*The conference title, ‘23%’, was drawn from a research report compiled by the Fawcett Society, the UK’s leading campaign for women’s equality and rights. On average, women in the UK earn 15% less than men. In London, in January 2013, the pay gap stood at 23%.
