¿Máquinas de amar? Sexo y violencia en la literatura y el arte norteamericanos de los sesenta

Nieves Alberola Crespo

Resum


This article explores the representation of the female body in American Art in the sixties. From Marcel Duchamp's alter-ego Rose Sélavy to Raimond Carver narrative, sexuality and violence are at stake. The construction of women as love machines by Pop Art and Avant-garde, as well as Mel Ramos and Eduardo Paolozzi pin-up girls, are considered expressions of violence against women. Alan Jones's disturbing works and films like The Seven Year Itch of Billy Wilder show how the male gaze builds and destroys women.
