Summary

Dutch artist Jacqueline Hassink has received critical acclaim for her books and exhibitions that deal conceptually with issues of power and social relations. Car Girls is a body of work that Hassink has created over five years, photographing major car shows in seven different cities on three continents. As she describes it, she has used these sites to reflect on differing cultural values with regard to their ideal images of beauty and women. The series captures the moments during the womens performances when they become more like dolls or tools than individuals. In an issue of Aperture magazine, Francine Prose praised the work for its ability to make us rethink the association between auto and eros as if it had never occurred to us, and to see it newly in all its sheer outrageous strangeness. Car Girls takes a subversively fun yet conceptually astute approach to issues of gender, power, and commodification. This luxuriously produced publication is designed by the award-winning Irma Boom, and is limited to an edition of 1,500 copies.
