        Join the Zuckerman Museum of Art at Kennesaw State University and the Gender and Women's Studies Program in our Book Club, discussing Art on My Mind: Visual Politics by bell hooks. In this 1995 publication, hooks, a leading cultural critic, responds to the ongoing dialogues about producing, exhibiting, and criticizing art and aesthetics in an art world increasingly concerned with identity politics. We will discuss how identity politics played a role in the artistic choices displayed in the work of our exhibitions, UNBOUND and Looming Chaos, and how they continue to play a role in the world today.
