Studenteropgave: Semesterprojekt

Abstrakt

Sexy Constructions is a project that treats the notion of gender. It seeks to investigate the tension created between two poles: the idea of a socially constructed gender and the idea of one based on essence. The project introduces theories by Judith Butler, Anne-Fausto Sterling, and Diana Fuss which all represent an anti-essentialist standpoint. As an object of analysis, the project scrutinizes the book "Ta' Mig" by Danish sexologist Joan Ørting. She offers advice to modern relationships, and analyses gender relations from an essentialist point of departure.
