A Punk Housewife







Born Linda Mulvey in 1954 in Liverpool, Linder Sterling – radical feminist and prominent figure of the Manchester punk and post-punk scene (amongst other things she co-founded in 1978 the post-punk group Ludus) – is well known for her simple and crude montages, which combined images taken from pornographic magazines with images from women's fashion and domestic magazines.
Influenced by Dada and more directly from the poetry of Penélope Shuttle and Peter Redgrove, his works reveal us the role of women of the '70s as played by magazines: a superficially female image, in the dichotomy between housewife role and that of erotic object.
