Disguise. Artists Who Use Disguise to Explore How We Create and Change Our Personal Image

Disguise explores the way in which artists use forms of disguise in their work to raise questions about how our identities are created. Vibrant, humorous and thought-provoking, the publication encompasses issues of style, fashion and personal identity. It brings together the work of twelve UK and international artists working in photography, video and sculpture. These artists adopt extreme forms of disguise to cross boundaries of gender, race or conventional behaviour, causing us to reflect on how we all use forms of disguise in our daily lives, through our dress, make-up or behaviour.
