'This thought-provoking, empowering work will inspire fellow artists and forward thinkers alike' - Publishers Weekly

The first book to catalogue the entire career of the Guerrilla Girls from 1985 to present.

The Guerrilla girls are a collective of political feminist artists who expose discrimination and corruption in art, film, politics, and pop culture all around the world. This book explores all their provocative street campaigns, unforgettable media appearances, and large-scale exhibitions.

Each copy comes with a punch-out gorilla mask that invites readers to step up and join the movement themselves. Captions by the Guerrilla Girls themselves contextualize the visuals. Explores their well-researched, intersectional takedown of the patriarchyIn 1985, a group of masked feminist avengers-known as the Guerrilla Girls-papered downtown Manhattan with posters calling out the Museum of Modern Art for its lack of representation of female artists.

They quickly became a global phenomenon, and the fearless activists have produced hundreds of posters, stickers, and billboards ever since. More than a monograph, this book is a call to arms. This career-spanning volume is published to coincide with their 35th anniversary.

Perfect for artists, art lovers, feminists, fans of the Guerrilla Girls, students, and activists

'the first book to catalogue their career, aptly titled The Art of Behaving Badly, with hundreds of their street campaigns and large-scale exhibitions designed to expose discrimination, sexism, racism, and corruption in the international art world.' - NY Magazine

'This thought-provoking, empowering work will inspire fellow artists and forward thinkers alike' - Publishers Weekly

'The masked and anonymous Guerrilla Girls, behaving so badly they’re good, have been agitating for gender equity in the institutional art world for 35 years. Progress has been made — though not enough — but graphic punch and irrepressible wit skewer powerful patriarchy at every turn in the pages of “Guerrilla Girls: The Art of Behaving Badly,” which chronicles the history of their exploits.' - LA Times
