Play with Me – When Artists Play With Sex Dolls

 

 

From inflatable dolls to modern, ultra-realistic and robotic sex dolls, artists have long realized that these objects of pleasure reflected a part of the collective unconscious of our societies. With her book  Play with Me: Dolls, Women and Art , journalist  Grace Banks has decided to document how artists use these sex dolls to explore the place of women in our culture. Between objectification, gender and caricature of the female body, these dolls for adults trigger a real ethical and political debate, which contemporary artists seek to dissect.

In her book, Grace Banks gathers the work and interviews of 40 artists, around the use of these dolls but also the representation of women in the visual culture. The book ”  Play with Me: Dolls, Women and Art” is available on  Laurence King’s website
