Description

Before disappearing into Zen-like purdah, Stewart Home’s last act as commissioning editor of Semina, was the delivery of an anonymous feminist assault on the pretensions and hypocrisy of the London art world. Using pornographic spam emails, Blood Rites of the Bourgeoisie reveals the un-nameable desires of leading feminist artists, projected through the aspirant culture of London’s curatorial elite. With walk-on parts by Martha Rosler, Sam Taylor Wood, and Tracey Emin, sensational lost Belle de Jour transcripts, and missives from the underbelly of the blogosphere, Blood Rites of the Bourgeoisie reads like SCUM manifesto remixed by The Bomb Squad. Rushed to Malcolm McLaren for an endorsement, legend has it his final croak was, ‘Feminism with Balls’.

As a protective act the book is published under the name of Stewart Home, whilst the identity of the author remains anonymous.
