Sex Pots: Eroticism in Ceramics

Sex Pots: Eroticism in Ceramics Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Includes bibliographical references (p. 219-220) and index.

Synopsis:

Mathieu looks over a variety of themes dealing with eroticism and ceramics--including aesthetics, sexuality, and the societies that engendered them--to produce a clear view of not only the history of ceramics and sexuality but also a view of contemporary practice and trends with an insight into future developments. "Sex Pots" provides a unique overview of the interconnection between two of the most persistent themes in human society: eroticism and art.

Synopsis:

Over the past twenty years debates about pornography have raged within feminism and beyond. Throughout the 1970s feminists increasingly addressed the problem of men's sexual violence against women, and many women reduced the politics of men's power to questions about sexuality. By the 1980s these questions had become more and more focused on the issue of pornography--now a metaphor for the menace of male power. Collapsing feminist politics into sexuality and sexuality into pornography has not only caused some of the deepest splits between feminists, but made it harder to think clearly about either sexuality or pornography--indeed, about feminist politics more generally.

This provocative collection, by well-known feminists, surveys these arguments, and in particular asks why recent feminist debates about sexuality keep reducing to questions of pornography.
