Humor and Activism: Guerrilla Girls

In this video, Melanie Manos explores the intersection of humor and activism with the example of the Guerrilla Girls.

The Guerrilla Girls are feminist activist artists who publicly expose gender and ethnic bias in the art world using pop culture aesthetics and advertising formats.

They wear guerrilla masks for public appearances and use pseudonyms of deceased women artists to maintain their own anonymity and to pay homage to those artists. View more on The Guerrilla Girls’ website.
