Sexuality as a central theme in art was, until the 1970s, dominated primarily by the male view of the female body. Feminist artists also concentrated on their own body, while a (hetero-)erotic view of men is still an exception today. When feminist artists cast their desiring gaze at the male body they consequently break various taboos. With their pictures of men, they assert a claim to sexual self-determination and artistic authority. They simultaneously call classical role attributions into question. The publication accompanying the exhibition at the Stadtgalerie Saarbrücken provides fascinating insights into this fresh point of view
