The body of work above is likely aimed at both men and women. When she uses the word '"Your", in order to address males and "my" while addressing females. The purpose of the background image reflects the caption and is placed so women can feel power or control in their daily lives, as this clearly addresses how a woman should be able to look away and deny a man staring at her. In this body of work, the male audience is villainized for
I agree with the thought that this image is aimed at both men and women, however, this comment is lacking analysis. I was confused when you mentioned how the image relates to women’s decisions, and the lack of structure did not help. I see the thought behind this, however, a clearer understanding and structure is necessary to successfully convey your message.
The structure presented in Barbara Kruger’s Body of Work helps the audience understand and analyze the message of the image deeply, and helps create a dialogue surrounding it.
In this specific piece of Barbar Kruger’s Body of Work the text reads “Your gaze hits the side of my face” with each word place directly below the next eventually reaching the bottom of the poster. The isolation of these words and the up-down srutucture of the image lead the reader to analyze each individual word deeply.
This analysis that is enabled by the structure then creates a dialogue. After reading the text the audience is forced to reflect on it and eventually develop an opinion formed from reflection. This opens discourse and conversation about the message, the ultimate goal of this visual.
Overall, Barbara Kruger’s use of structure in this image is effective at creating reflection and starting dialogue to address the message in the image.
The targeted audience for the visual text are both men and woman. Then the tone and mood for the text is determined and controlling, determinism coming from the woman, that they will not give into looking back at the man or the person that is looking towards her. Then controlling by the woman taking ownership, taking control of herself, she is telling the men that she will not give them the power that they may crave.
The content of Barbara Kruger’s artwork is portraying the global issue of how the women wont take being shown as an object or treated like one. A very similar global issue that happened in pymaligon towards the end where Eliza wanted to stop being treated like a subject.
I agree on what these other fellow peers are saying:)
Kruger is most likely trying to capture the attention of men through using the visual poster to emphasize on the message that women will not give into the idea of belonging to anyone but themselves.
Looking at Barbra Kruger’s work she try’s to imply that men just keep women around to look pretty. As if women are just statues that are meant to be adored. It can also imply that women are aware of this and keep still as if the statue represents a women not fighting back and allowing man to look at her.
I agree with this because the quote says that women should turn the other way
The image shows how woman in a way feel attacked by the way that they get stared at constantly by men. The artist shows this by using the words “hits” when she talks about the statues face. This shows that the gaze of men rather feels like a punch compared to something that is not physical.
The picture is focused to both women and man. The main theme of the picture that is being presented to us is a global issue that is representing how women are not being treated as people but they are being treated as objects. This global issue has been going around for many years and throughout the time is has changed into a positive change.
The article Barbara Kruger is demonstrating the way a women feels when men look her way and judge, but she could careless about the situation
This is a very good, clear way that you expressed the way that you feel towards the picture
Just showing how women will not give their self up to anyone and if men can do it then girls can too. #bet or or It could be also for men to think they can do what girls can do because its not hard. #gottem
The work created by Barbara Kruger is intended to portray the global issue of gender roles in our society. The phrase, “Your gaze hits the side of my face”, is comparable to the way men have always felt a sense of dominance over women throughout history. The woman in this image is being noticeably gazed at and it shows how men can look at a woman as if she were an object and feel a sense of dominance. The content in this image conveys the theme of gender roles and the affects they’ve had on women throughout history.
Barbara Kruger uses the word “your” to address males and “my” to address females. This quote is meant to empower women to turn the over way when a male is degrading her.
The image portrays the women’s position as an object in the minds and views of society. While the text “Your gaze hits the side of my face” seems simple, the statue’s determined expression show that women will no longer accept being displayed as an object rather than a human.
HI. Barbara Kruger portrays how women are being treated towards men, and how they are not meant to be told anything or controlled by their opprressivness. This global issue comes from a part in Pygmalion where Higgins treats Eliza as some object or subject she is not.
The purpose of this poster is to portray the woman as a strong individual that stands against submitting to society’s ideals. Instead of being a pretty statue for someone to gaze at she rejects it because it isn’t of importance to her which is evident in the text “Your gaze hits the side of my face.” If she cared about society’s opinions about her she would pay attention. However, she chooses to look away and be unaffected by men and or society.
The image above by Barbara Kruger portrays the global issue of gender equality. The image quote tells us how women might feel oppressed towards the presence of men which leads back to our global issues of how society has treated women poorly over the years in comparison to men.
I believe that Barbara Kruger intend to inform her female audience that they should not allow patriarchal influence int here life and just by ignoring it a focusing on something else
The art above is likely aimed at both genders. When she uses the word '"Your", in order to address men and "my" while addressing women. The purpose of the background image reflects the caption and is placed so women can feel power or control in their daily lives, as this clearly addresses how a woman should be able to look away and deny a man staring at her.
The picture by Barbara Kruger shows us about the global issue of gender equality. The image shows us how women might feel oppressed towards being next to men which leads back to our global issues of how society has treated women poorly over the years in comparison to men. In modern days women are not able to choose for themselves just like in this picture.
This is really good🤡🤡
The content of Barbara Kruger’s artwork is portraying the global issue of how the women wont take being shown as an object or treated like one. A very similar global issue that happened in pymaligon towards the end where Eliza wanted to stop being treated like a peasant .
I agree with this, it’s straight to the point, and I liked how you related the messsage of this visual to Eliza in Pygmalion
This is really good🤡🤡🤡🤡🤡🤡🤡🤡🤡🤡
I agree wey
The image by Kruger portrays women feeling judged and degraded by men. It is illustrated by using the words “your” as in men in society who oppress women and “my” as women who are victims of this issue. The artwork is used to highlight the topic of encouraging women to fight back against sexism.
I agree with your statement because the caption implifies a much bigger meaning than what it really seems.
This image effectively brings attention to the prevalent issue of gender inequality in society today, as it is aimed towards male and female audiences. “Your gaze” means that of a man, and “my face” means that of a woman. The woman is a statue, symbolizing their rigid “position” in society today, but they refuse to look the male population “in the eye,” meaning they refuse to submit to male control. The image (female statue) represents the perception of women through the eyes of men, however, the text (“Your gaze hits the side of my face”) represents the response to this perception through the eyes of a woman.
I agree :)
This image by Kruger is being seen as a representative of gender roles being played. The caption is referring to men, and being seen in a lower state of power describes how gender takes a big place in society. The woman is clearly being starred at and is showing emotion to how her potential is being controlled by men and society.
I agree with Hopes statement, the global issue is how women are constantly degraded by men.
I appreciate the way you interpreted this by saying women’s POTENTIAL are manipulated by the male population!
I agree with your statement, I throughly enjoyed how you expressed your ideas. In addition i appreciated your clear point of view.
The image above by Barbara Krueger demonstrates the global issue of gender equality. The image text informs us about how women.feel oppressed towards men’s attitude or thoughts about them. This leads back to the global issue of how society has treated woman unfairly over time in comparison to men, they are viewed with a higher value than women. A very similar global issue appeared in Pygmalion when Eliza expressed that she was tired of being viewed as an object.
The image portrays the global issue of ngender inequality and the text talks about how a woman dose not need to follow society’s standards and will look the other way
This is cute👌🏿🐀
This image represents how the speaker expresses the fact that they don’t care about the judgement that society gives them, this also can be used as something that could encourage other women to stand up for themselves. This message is heavily pointed towards women as its main audience since women are usually more likely to be judged by their way of living, etc. The global issue connected to it is gender inequality since women are also judged based on societal expectations. This global issue is also seen in Pygmalion once Eliza is at Mrs. Higgins’s house and talking to Higgins. Eliza is not letting Higgins belittle her for what she is when she talks to him.
This piece of art is very informative and excellent.
This following comment is quite exquisite
The textual visual created by Barbra Kruger is conveying the global issue of how women are being portrayed in society. This visual shows how women are only portrayed through one side which is the side society wants to see. In addition women are being seen and used as objects which also relates to Eliza in Pygmalion. Eliza wants to break free from how she is being treated.
This comment is well related to the image as well as how you included Eliza, i agree.
Barbara’s Kruger portrays in this image the gender equality in gender roles. It shows how women are treated as objects,unfairly in comparison of men. Kruger wants to inform the audience that females aren’t just statues.
The work made Barbara portrayals the feeling those upon women and how they feel towards society on its image on how women are only known as objects and only something to gaze upon on as so. The back and whit imagery can mean the close mindedness of those you put upon this image and never look deeper then looks and status of beauty.
This visual image represents the gender inequality. Barbara Kruger states on the image “your” to address the males, and “my” to address females. This quotes suggests that the men overpower women.
In Kruger’s mage, the global issue is societies gender inequality. It shows that men are overpowered by women by them defining who they are and what they should be. We can conclude this by the statue and specific word choices ‘your’ ‘hit’ and ‘my’
This image if targeting the male audience who when they see a women they see her body. The text is trying to say “ hey look up” to get the mans attention.
I agree, in the image the global issue of gender inequality, and how woman are treated like objects, as opposed to human beings. Additionally, the gaze women feel is supposed to be representative of the oppression women feel by men. Kruger hopes to convey to her audience that women are much more than objects, and showcase what women feel.
The image above by Barbara Kruger portrays the idea of gender equality and how the system we had in place some time ago just for women to be a pretty doll in front of a shop for the entire male population to look at. But the response this image has to all males is, no I will not be this pretty face you expect me to be, no I will not stay quiet when you choose for me to, I can and will make decisions for myself so you can just gaze at the side of my face as I grow to be the person I want to be instead of what you expect me to show you.
