Woman / Object

Linder is one of the iconic protagonists of British late-1970s punk. Her artistic practice has always covered art, music, dance and fashion and unites various media, such as collage, photography, video and performance.

With her uncompromising feminist approach, she questions socially coded ideas about gender and the sexual marketing of the female body. Since the beginning of her career Linder has drawn from the inexhaustible source of porn and glossy magazines, which she puts together in Dada-like collages.

The construction of social identities is reflected in Linder’s own self-staging, whether as the subject of her self-portraits or in performances that she develops for museums and theatres.

Comprised of some 200 works drawn from four decades of practice, this major retrospective exhibition catalogue has been produced in close collaboration with the artist, and is inspired by the format of a ‘fanzine’.

Published on the occasion of the exhibition Linder: Femme / Objet at Musée d’Art moderne de la Ville de Paris, 1 February – 21 April 2013, and at kestnergesellschaft, Hannover, 7 June – 4 August 2013.
