Bod­ies By De­sign


RIGGED, the new col­lec­tion of work by 2014 Scher­ing Stiftung Art Award win­ner Kate Cooper, ex­plores the de­pic­tion of the fe­male body in the com­mer­cial pho­tog­ra­phy and ad­ver­tis­ing images that are so ubiq­ui­tous to­day. CGI-al­tered images ex­pose the amount of ef­fort that goes into gen­er­at­ing th­ese man­u­fac­tured bod­ies, and bill­board-sized fig­ures in­stalled through­out the gallery force the viewer to con­front how th­ese hu­man sub­sti­tu­tions have be­come a part of our lives to­day. See the show un­til 11 Jan­uary at KW In­sti­tute for Con­tem­po­rary Art. Au­gust­straße 69.
