COUM Transmissions’ notorious performance-based installation, Prostitution (1976) was presented one month after Mary Kelly’s Post-Partum Document at the very same venue. Chapter three finds unexpected points of connection between the two installations, and argues that COUM’s riotously queer aesthetic challenges many long-held assumptions about feminist art.
