Erase the Patriarchy

History is history.

The uncompromising, oppressive, outdated reins of patriarchy plaguing the entire world have never been more obvious—and perhaps never more in need of dismantling. Inspired, seemingly tireless people across the globe have always banded together in solidarity and action hell-bent on change. Sometimes this change is rooted in policy reform, sometimes revolution—and often artistic expression.

Within this gorgeous volume of erasure artworks exist differing cultural experiences connected by the desire for paradigm shift on a global political scale. Familiar statements and treatises are transformed into poetic versions of what reality looks like or could become for many of us stuck in a vicious machine. This international artistic appeal rips apart layers of deception, inequity, and fraud perpetuated by systems of power. Erasing what no longer serves us can reveal another avenue from which to begin.

Erase the Patriarchy succeeds in setting the perfect tone: this is a book that aims to dig up ancient and powerful roots.”
