With her book Play with Me: Dolls, Women and Art, journalist Grace Banks has decided to document how artists use these sex dolls to explore the place of women in our culture. Between objectification, gender and caricature of the female body, these dolls for adults trigger a real ethical and political debate, which contemporary artists seek to dissect. In her book, Grace Banks gathers the work and interviews of 40 artists, centered on the use of these dolls but also on the representation of women in the visual culture. Via: Ufunk
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.
