»Gender« und (A-)Symmetrie

Back to issue: Zeitschrift für Kulturphilosophie 2011/2: Kulturalisierung
EUR 14.90

In recent years cultural definitions of »gender« have had extraordinary institutional success. This paper analyses visual worlds that have been motivated by constructivist gender concepts that often display a pronounced symmetry. It relates them to competing images which present difference as scandal, as a mirrored form of the self, or as figurations, and which politicize a-symmetrical forms. The study looks into the social condition of publicity that is constituted by such »picture acts«.
