THE FEMINIST T-SHIRT

The Post-Feminist Slut/Voyeur Artist Statement

Step 1: talk about how your subjectivity is formed in the wake of post-feminism

Step 2: use your fairly attractive body in all your work, photographed in skimpy underwear & rollerskates—it’s okay to look slutty becuz you’re a feminist interrogating self-objectification

Step 3: DON’T WEAR MAKE-UP. It will cause you to not be taken seriously “conceptually”. DO WEAR SKIMPY UNDERWEAR. It will make your work sell like hotcakes.

Step 4: talk about how you are problematizing the traditional relationship between spectator and on-screen fetish object

Step 5: end with the phrase “an unsettling dance of seduction, power, trust, tenderness, loss, and betrayal”
