Play with Me: Dolls, Women and Art

Play with Me: Dolls, Women and Art (Paperback)

£24.99
Usually despatched within 2 days.

Synopsis

Artists are increasingly using doll-like human effigies to explore politics and gender in contemporary culture, ranging from radical statement to sophisticated critique.



Play with Me showcases this appeal of animating the inanimate as well as the multifarious and fascinating ideas that dolls bring to life - from the way female forms have been objectified to the way dolls generate ethical and political debate to the way they represent the self.



Unlike sculptures, dolls offer a living and open construct of the human figure. And artists are reacting to this human form in a manner that's never been seen before, constituting an exciting new direction in contemporary art.
