eBook - 1998
Rate this:
Turning the tables on the pornography debate, this is an analysis of taboo-shattering fiction, film and performance art. The book investigates the role of fantasy in art, politics and popular culture and shows how technological advances in medicine and science have altered our concepts of the human body. It offers a tour of the cultural landscape and connects the dots between the radical artists who shatter taboos and challenge legal and aesthetic convention. Writers such as John Hawkes, Robert Coover and Kathy Acker, filmmakers such as Ngozi Onwurah and Isaac Julien, and performers like Carolee Schneemann and Annie Sprinkle are examined.
