Man-Made Woman: The Dialectics of Cross-Dressing
Out of Stock
- Delivery & Returns
On July 27th, 2015, Colin Cremin overcame a lifetime of fear and repression and came to work dressed as a woman called Ciara. Interweaving the personal and the political, through discussions of fetishism, aesthetics and popular culture, Man-Made Woman explores gender, identity and pleasure through the lenses of feminism, Marxism and psychoanalytic theory. Cremin’s anti-moralistic approach dismantles the abjection associated with male-to-female crossdressing, examining the causes of its repression and considering what it means to publicly materialise desire on her body. Man-Made Woman is an experiment in thought and practice through which both author and reader are drawn ultimately into a conflict with our material, ideological and libidinal relationship to patriarchal capitalism.
