Product Information

"A feast of insight into gender, sex, and contemporary culture, staged as sneak attacks filled with devastating grace, acuity, and wit." --Carole S. Vance, Columbia University "As a visual artist, Barbara Kruger has led the way in challenging the separation of public and private life. In Remote Control, she is a talking viewer with a hit-and-run attitude. Her vivid commentary on TV and film will galvanize even the most jaded with its social clarity and its savvy sense of cultural justice." --Andrew Ross, Director, American Studies Program, New York University
