When gouging ones eyes seems like the perfect commentary on the prescribed domesticity of relationships, it’s no surprise Linder was once described as a radical feminist. Her work critiques the societal and cultural gender confines that her generation had to either concede or rebel against. Born Linda Mulvey, she borrowed inspiration from British punk music and the Dada movement to create her artworks, many of which focused on the female body as depicted in both porn and fashion magazines.
