Translation of abstract (English)

This text is dedicated to Griselda Pollock who has created what is called "feminist art history" almost since its very beginning and is nowadays regarded as one of its most influential representatives. Pollock perceives her activity mainly in political categories, treating analytical practices as an element of women's movement aiming at revolution in social reality (also the scope of knowledge). She regards art history as ideological practice and intervenes within its scope in order to debunk the myths accumulated in it. However, she remains to operate within the art history but to some extent against it, for example by differencing the canon (the title of one of her latest books) and differencing interpretations. The latest refers also to her practice as she often comes back to works she has already written on to read them again (sometimes against her earlier analysis). Although her language (and texts she turns to while developing her methodology) changes from one book to another, the search for what is feminine (in latest texts she uses the feminine) remains the main idea.
