first of all, nice title. second, yves klein's work is pretty much all about spectacle, so i think you chose the perfect article to accompany it: sexual, absurd, exploitative.

sidebar: yves klein has often been criticized for his use of women as the subject in art, the receiver of the gaze, at a time in art history when feminist theory was coming to the fore (ie laura mulvey). is he a chauvinist? probably, but his work is still the shit.

look up valie export. she takes the female body to the next level...
