Lotta Continua is definitely one of Alexandra Bolzer’s most critical works. In her radical imagery she relentlessly deals with the dictates of beauty, the promise of eternal youth and the powerlessness of an aesthetically stylized society.
Questions pile up: what do bodies have to represent today? What does masculinity mean? What is femininity? What does age do with our bodies and how do we escape the dictates of eternally enticing youth through cosmetic surgery.
Her pictures are crowded. When will we give up? Will we ever give up? The fight goes on!
