The problem of nudity, identity and growing up (in works of contemporary women artists)

  1. Marek Śnieciński


The text discusses the oeuvre of the selected contemporary female artists, who in their works analyse the problem of nakedness, treated as a costume, metaphor or event, as well as those, who deal with issues of identity, processes of creating it and the visual (media) identity masks. The works by such artists as Alba d’Urbano, Vanessa Beecroft, Katarzyna Kozyra, Alina Szapocznikow, Herlinde Koelbl, Tina Bara, Eva Bertram, Ursula Rogg and Tanja Ostojič are analysed. The text includes theoretical considerations by Lynda Nead, Agata Jakubowska, Giorgio Agamben and Hans Belting.
