Drapery by Gen Doy
Book DescriptionGen Doy investigates the hitherto neglected meanings of drapery and the draped body in visual culture. The baroque and the classical are her subjects, as are Freud's "Gravida", Clerambault's writings and photographs of draped figures, the fetishistic play between veiling and revealing and the meanings of drapery in recent art, from Christo's wrapped Reichstag to the impact of the modern women's movement on fine art practice. Yet she also finds and focuses on the draped body now in places like Algeria and Kosovo where drapery's connotations are no longer those of purity and civilized elegance but of barbarism, poverty, and savage death.

Books By Author Gen Doy
Claude Cahun, Paperback (November 2007)
Provides information about the photographer Claude Cahun, whose work was rediscovered in the 1980s. This book positions the artist in the context of the turbulent times in which she lived. It sees the photographs as part of Cahun's wider life as an artist and writer, a woman and lesbian and as a political activist in the early twentieth century.
Picturing the Self, Paperback (September 2004)
Arguing that the importance of subjectivity for art goes far beyond self-portraits, the author explores topics such as self-expression, the self, work and consumption.
Materializing Art History, Paperback (May 1998)» View all books by Gen Doy
Focusing on developments in the visual arts over the last 80 years but drawing extensively on historical precedents, this book shows that Marxism is far subtler than is commonly assumed.
