Linder, Hardback Book

Linder Hardback



Linder's photomontages violate, liberate and celebrate the human body to question the mechanics of gender and its ties to consumer culture and media.

Linder is best known for her pioneering photomontages that replace the sexualised imagery of soft-focus pornographic centrefolds with commodities of domestic middle-class life. Surprising, humorous, and at times shocking, these precise compositions bring to light the powerful fantasies and repressions that underlie our social expectations of identity. Spanning almost four decades, this monograph interweaves numerous photomontage series from throughout Linder's career, demonstrating the artist's manipulation of disparate source material - from brightly saturated male pornographic imagery to softly lit portraits of ballerinas.

Accompanying over 250 illustrations is a conversation between the artist and renowned art historian Dawn Ades that reconciles her provocative work with the longer history of photomontage.
