Keep This Sex Out Of My Sight: The Undisplayable of Female Sex as Revealed by Women

Ever since women artists gave themselves the right to declare their sexual fantasies, their work has yielded revelations for those who once declared their fantasies for them. In a raw language that ignores taboos, these women speak of sex like Courbet painted “The Origin of the World.” Keep This Sex Out of My Sight is a hymn to women’s sex, a celebration of feminine desire, so often erased, hidden and forgotten. For the artists whose texts and images appear here, obscenity and pornography are responses to the male fear of the female sexual organ, and confronting them cancels their power.

Text: Gange Francoise, Zaburyan Elvan et al. pp. 128; paperback. Publisher: Dis Voir, Paris, 2003.
