Women and Meat

Now that the Lady Gaga steak dress saga has quietened down, it’s time to look at women, meat, art and feminism. Flavorpill had an interest post, alluding to the 1964 art video “Meat Joy” by feminist artist Carolee Schneemann.

The NY Times describes it: ““eight bodies ecstatically cavorting with wet paint, plastic, rope, paper scraps, raw fish, dead chickens and sausages in front of an audience.”

The French and English voiceover are saying completely different things and I wonder if part of the effect was meant to confuse. Either way, it’s not my kind of art.
