Evelin Stermitz - Women in war (2010)
This video work came into being during a research on the tag women on YouTube, and through this finding stereotyped videos with womens images entitled like Most Beautiful Women, Famous Sexy Women, and so forth. By re-editing the found videos and underlaying the material with sounds from reports on women in war and violence against women, the final video became a strange subversion of womens media images and the woman as a commodified object becomes obvious. The video is split between womens images in media and the sound of the real, to break with a world of male illusions and enter the field of male transgression. Women in War is a metaphor for womens images in the media war and real war.
