Remote Control Summary


Remote Control: Power, Cultures and the World of Appearances by Barbara Kruger

Who speaks? Who is silent? Who is seen? who is absent? These questions focus on how cultures are constructed through pictures and words, how we are seduced into a world of appearances: into a pose of who we are and aren not. On both an emotional and an economic level, images and texts have the power to make us rich or poor. In these essays and reviews, written over the last decade, Barbara Kruger addresses that power, in the hope of engaging both our criticality and our dreams of affirmation. Barbara Kruger is an artist whose pictures and words engage issues of power, sex, money, difference, and death.
