How are women depicted in popular culture today? The expression “sex sells” can readily be validated by looking in virtually any magazine, those geared for either men or women.
- Look in five different types of magazines to find five images of how a woman is depicted. What is the purpose of the image/ad? How is the woman being depicted? What are the intentions of the figure? And how do you, the viewer, feel towards this woman and/or the intentions of the image/ad? 100-300 words
- Then as an extension of this project, choose one image of particular interest. Copy or scan to create a black and white image. Incorporate a contrasting or provocative statement in red, similar to Barbara Kruger’s work Untitled (Your body is a battleground).
