NadiaKiener_CinemaofTact_OutofSite2012-290x290Cinema of Tact” by Nadia Gomez Kiener

Kiener stands in front of the bustling Damen blue line stop, a box covering her midsection with a curtain in front. Next to her, a sign beckons “TOUCH MY NAKED BOSOM!”. When curiosity (of varying degrees of innocence and perversion) tempt passersby, they are delighted to discover that behind the curtain is a plastic hair-covered male chest instead of the promised female breasts. Based off of VALIE EXPORT’s Tap and Touch Cinema (1968).
