Recently there have been several forums dedicated to the analysis of feminism as an artrelated practice, and questioning its role and relevance in contemporary art in both America and Europe. The issue of Artforum published in October 2003, for example, asked a group of nine artists, theorists and art historians to comment on the question 'How might we assess feminism's initial impacts on art, its subsequent historicisation, and its continuing influence?' (p. 140). Responses were diverse and inconclusive and one could say that they asked more questions than they answered.
