The Female Gaze

A brilliant reworking of Laura Mulvey’s 1975 work on the Male Gaze. Here Jill Soloway articulates what the female gaze could be and it’s not simply switching sex positions – not simply women taking the male gaze to objectify. What Soloway suggests is a remarkable reworking of film aesthetics that pushes the camera operator into ‘feeling-seeing’ the director and actors to show what it feels like to be seen and everyone into a “justice demanding way of art making”. This is an important discussion for artists especially for those working for social justice.
