Synopsis:

Since the 19th century, dolls have served as toys but also as objects of obsession, love, and lust. That century witnessed the emergence of the term "heterosexual" and of modern concepts of fetishism, perversity, and animism. Their convergence, and the demands of a growing consumer society resulted in a proliferation of waxworks, shop-window dummies, and customized love dolls, which also began to appear in art. Oskar Kokoschka commissioned a life-sized doll of his former lover Alma Mahler; Hans Bellmer crafted poupées; and Marcel Duchamp fabricated a nude figure in his environmental tableau Etant donnés. The Erotic Doll is the first book to explore men's complex relationships with such inanimate forms from historical, theoretical, and phenomenological perspectives. Challenging our commonsense grasp of the relations between persons and things, Marquard Smith examines these erotically charged human figures by interweaving art history, visual culture, gender, and sexuality studies with the medical humanities, offering startling insights into heterosexual masculinity and its discontents.


Book Description:

This provocative book is the first to explore the history of men’s complex relationships to inanimate human forms, through an art-historical lens.

Book Description Spätestens seit dem 19. Jahrhundert werden Puppen als Spielzeug, aber auch als Objekte von Obsession, Liebe und Lust verwendet. Der Begriff »heterosexuell« entsteht in dieser Zeit, aber auch neuartige Konzepte von Fetisch und Perversion. Diese Entwicklung konvergiert mit dem Aufkommen von Wachs- und Schaufensterpuppen sowie von Puppen als Sexspielzeug. All dies fand Eingang in die moderne Kunst: Oskar Kokoschka gab eine lebensgroße Puppe seiner ehemaligen Geliebten Alma Mahler in Auftrag, Hans Bellmer inszenierte Puppen, zerlegte sie und fügte sie zu immer neuen Fragmenten zusammen, die er schließlich fotografierte, Marcel Duchamp fügte eine nackte Figur in sein Tableau »Etant donnés« ein. Dieser Band beschäftigt sich erstmals mit der komplexen, erotisch aufgeladenen Beziehung zwischen Mann und Puppe aus einer historischen, theoretischen, phänomenologischen und kunsthistorischen Perspektive. (Text eng., Yale) 17 x 24 cm, 376 S., 130 Abb., davon 20 farbig, Leinen. Bookseller Inventory # 785890
