  • New Objectification
    New Objectification‘New Objectifications' explores the empowering possibilities of a semantic and visual re-appropriation of objectification, a widespread phenomenon within the fashion media. By developing a comprehensive view of the relationship between gender and the media in the 21st century, the work analyses objectification and how it has impacted body politics and perceptions throughout the 20th and 21st centuries, also how it relates to third wave feminism both globally and locally.
