at the Fratelli Alinari Museum of History of Photography,
November 19, 2009 - January 10, 2010
"The photographer Matuschka has used her body to express the anguish of losinga breast. Unlike her famous portrait that appeared on the cover of The New YorkTimes Magazine of August 15, 1993, (Beauty out of Damage) in this photo theremoved breast is covered by a ghostly hand that evokes the close presence ofdeath."
"Included in this book are images from the greatest masters of contemporaryphotography that bring out the beauty of the breast and the female body without leaving out any point of view...From Erwitt and Cartier-Bresson's subtle humor, toNewton's brutal fashion photos, to Marcel Marien's surrealist photomontages...to insightful images from women themselves, like Diane Arbus and Matuschka."

in collaboration with
Richie Richardson and CARIB, celebrates
Nat'l Caribbean American Heritage Month
Featuring WITHOUT FACES
Curator, Richie Richardson
The self portraits in "Don't Globalize This" are not about me. That is why I changed my 'culture,' race and sex for this project. Globalization is just another name for submission and domination.
And the end result? Impersonalization + homogenization leading to separate lives with no contact and no sense of belonging to the same nation. A world whose life force is not induced by beauty and love. We are not born, we are grown. We are not raised, we are programmed. We do not give, we acquire. We do not receive, we reject."

New Book Release: Staring: The Way We Look
"Matuschka changed the way we stare at breasts."-Rosemarie Garland-Thomson, author of Staring: The Way We Look
Featuring several pages on Matuschka and three of her self portraits, "one might say Matuschka is a professional staree."
"From a very young age we are told not to stare, and one hallmark of maturation is the ability to resist (or at least hide) our staring behavior. Staring captures the stimulating combination of symbolic, material and emotional factors that make staring so irresistible while endeavoring to shift the usual response to staring, shame, into an engaged self-consideration."
The Way We Look is an elegant and provocative book that advances new ways of thinking about visuality and the body. For those interested in the overlap between the humanities and human behaviors.
