In her newest body of work, Cindy Sherman continues her long-standing investigation into identity as a social construction. Since the 1970s, her photographs have addressed topics such as identity, gender, and social roles, examining stereotypical media representations of women. By adopting a multitude of disguises and personae, the artist invites the viewer to take critical stance on subjectivity and sexuality.
Cindy Sherman (*1954) is a pivotal figure in the history of appropriation art and one of the world’s best-known contemporary artists. Since the late 1970s, she has been photographing herself in roles inspired by mass-media stereotypes, but also real people and art-historical imagery. Read more about Cindy Sherman.
