This brief review essay focuses on the central question posed in Ewa Plonowska Ziarek’s Feminist Aesthetics and the Politics of Modernism: if feminism is considered in social and biographical terms while aesthetics focuses on questions of form and abstraction, does a feminist aesthetics become inconceivable? This question is examined in light of the traditional divide in modernist studies between aesthetics and the political.
