'On Gender Statistics in the Art Field and Leading Positions in the International Sphere'.
In this article Katrin Hassler reviews the statistics available on women artists and presents her own research into the 'top one hundred' listings as well as juxtaposing research on curators/museums with the situation of women artists in the art market.

Hannah Martin-Merchant 'Engaging Publics with Arts Institutions: The Frameworks of a Feminist Pedagogy' is based on interviews with four women: Janna Graham at Nottingham Contemporary, artist Jo Dacombe about her Loudspeaker project, and Lucy Day and Eliza Gluckman of the curatorial team Day+Gluckman.

Robin Alex McDonald
''There's the Problem': On Love's Role in Feminist, Lesbian and Queer Arts Organizing' - how love can function as a basis for activism is considered in two contrasting examples, the interventions of the Lesbian Art Collective in 1975 and the strategies adopted around making/sending Valentine's cards in the workshop-based activities of Love Positive Women (2015).

Carron Little discusses her project 'Spare Rib Revisited' as the basis for her contribution as a diary of 'An Artists' Residence in Lucerne'

This article reviewing the interventions of the collective in the culture of the art school incorporates a collage of documents from the Collective's work history.

Katarzyna Kosmala
'Becoming Imperceptible M/Other: Negotiating Porous Multiple Selves' reflects on works by Croatian and Polish artists shown in 'Exporting Zagreb' at the National Museum of Gdansk in 2016. It explores in particular the question of 'nomadic motherhood' in women artist's works to highlight the position of being 'in-between' different nation-states as well as 'inter'/ 'mezzo' forms of nomadic subjectivity (from Rosi Braidotti)
