Sex on the Video Screen
Video Guide, Dec. 1986, v. 8, no. 4, p. 8
The article discusses voyerism and the moving image as a direct component of sexuality or the socio-sexual relations between men and women. Since these relations are determined by a hieracrchy of male sexualtity, videos thus created focus on the sexual act as a spectacle, and also seek to unpack some of the sexual constructions of patriarchy. The article briefly discusses Martha Rosler's work- Vital Statistics of a Citizen, the objectification of women in media.
