Grete Stern was a German photographer who fought against gender stereotypes of the 30s and 40s with her strange and surreal images blending typography, advertising, and avant-garde photography to create unconventional depictions of women. In a time when women were expected to keep quiet and stay at home, Stern joined the Bauhaus school and began making work that looks like it could have come straight from a dream. Stern's surreal images feature women as lost and domestic figures. Their eyes are glazed over and hollow. The message here is clear – women are treated as objects. And these photomontages represents how it feels to be lost in that stereotype. Via: So good so bad
Pink for girls, blue for boys. A girl must be pretty, a boy must be strong. Pink and Blue is a powerful short film that illustrates the cultural differences between girls and boys, the image they have to represent and how to educate them. An awesome video directed by Jake Dypka and Hollie McNish.
