The article reviews the publication Performative Gestures Political Moves that was issued as a result of the symposium that took place in 2010 and organised by the City of Women. This contribution points to the difficulty of naming art “Western” or “Eastern” as well as to the broad meaning of the words “performative” and “political” used for the impetus giving rise to this edition. The author notes that the articles in the publication are very heterogeneous, ranging from presentations, re-historicisations, pieces addressing more obscure topics and analytical texts to artistic works. This polyphony in content, form and ways of presentation, and not only its content, is being read as a political and feminist gesture.
