Rozsika Parker's re-evaluation of the reciprocal relationship between women and embroidery has brought stitchery out from the private world of female domesticity into the fine arts, created a major breakthrough in art history and criticism, and fostered the emergence of today's dynamic and expanding crafts movements. 'The Subversive Stitch' is now available again with a new Introduction that brings the book up to date with exploration of the stitched art of Louise Bourgeois and Tracey Emin, as well as the work of new young female and male embroiderers. Rozsika Parker uses household accounts, women's magazines, letters, novels and the works of art themselves to trace through history how the separation of the craft of embroidery from the fine arts came to be a major force in the marginalisation of women's work. Beautifully illustrated, her book also discusses the contradictory nature of women's experience of embroidery: how it has inculcated female subservience while providing an immensely pleasurable source of creativity, forging links between women. "A book wonderfully rich, not only in information, but in people and ideas." - 'Guardian' "A marvellously written and illustrated book." - 'Times Educational Supplement'

The little-known art of Berlin Work was once the most commonly practiced art form among European women. Pictorial Embroidery in England is the first academic study of both pictorial Berlin Work and its precursor, needlepainting, exploring their cultural status in the 18th and 19th centuries. From enlightenment practices of copying to the development of an industrial aesthetic and the making of the modern amateur, Berlin Work developed as an official knowledge associated with notions of cultural and scientific progress. However, with the advent of the Arts and Crafts movement and modernist aesthetics, Berlin Work was gradually demoted to a craft hobby. Delving into the social, cultural and economic context of English pictorial embroidery, Pictorial Embroidery in England recovers Berlin Work as an art form, and demonstrates how this overlooked practice was once at the centre of cultural life.

Als Medium der Kunst gewinnen Stickereien seit den 1990er Jahren zunehmend an Beliebtheit. Künstlerinnen und Künstler nutzen damit eine Praxis, die als destillierter Ausdruck von Anstand und bürgerlicher Ordnung gilt und den extravaganten Gestus eines autonomen Künstlersubjekts konterkariert. Mittels ihrer Konnotationen problematisiert die Technik Normativitätsdispositive der Kunstgeschichte und der bipolaren Geschlechterordnung. Wie die altmodische Handarbeit Kunstwerke mit Renitenz ausstattet und welche neuen Rhetoriken daraus entwickelt werden, untersucht der Band anhand der Werke von Ghada Amer, Jochen Flinzer, Annette Messager, Francesco Vezzoli u.a.
