Barbara Kruger, We will no longer be seen and not heard
Barbara Kruger, Untitled - Hate
Barbara Kruger, Untitled (I shop therefore I am)
Barbara Kruger, Untitled (Thinking of you)
Barbara Kruger combines unsettling slogans with found or fabricated images from popular culture -- photographs from magazines, posters, and movies. The images are often fragmented, and the arresting slogans allude to physical and emotional violation. For example, one untitled composition is a picture of a hand holding an exploding firecracker. Its label reads “You are an Experiment on Terror.” Her art uses our willingness to receive media’s messages against us in order to alert us to our collusion in cultural group-think.
