Abstract

This chapter discusses feminist art activism and the creation of the character ‘ArtActivistBarbie,’ a fearless, feminist Barbie doll who is staged and posed in art galleries and museums to draw attention to gender representation, inequality and injustice. The work is a/r/tographic enquiry – an aesthetic, performative and critical pedagogic practice. The imaginative and creatively disruptive work of ArtActivistBarbie is explored as public pedagogy, public intellectualism and feminist ventriloquism which seeks to activate a critical feminist consciousness.
