It was in this context that Barbara Kruger created "Untitled (Your body is a battleground)," which was produced for the March for Women’s Lives in Washington, DC, in support of legal abortions, birth control, and women’s rights.
Almost three decades after Kienholz created The Illegal Operation, abortion had long been legalized in the United States, but in the late 1980s a new wave of anti-abortion laws had begun to undermine Roe v. Wade, leading to a resurgence of protests and demonstrations.
The gritty tableaux, which draws from the experience of Kienholz's then wife’s own “illegal operation,” depicts a makeshift operating room. There is no body in this scene, only a ripped sack of cement, its contents spilling onto a chair through an oozing gash.

"Wolf and Whelp," Japan, 18th century.
If it was still #MayThe4th we'd be telling you that's no moon.
But considering that it's #NationalSpaceDay we're obligated to let you know that yes, this is a moon. Take some time tonight to space out with this celestially-inspired collection highlight.
Finished with over 12,000 hand-applied Swarovski jet and jet-hematite crystals, the embellished gown sparkled as it expanded, contracted, and swayed like silk when sensually animated by Von Teese at the grand finale of a 2013 technology symposium during New York Fashion Week.
The gown's design is inspired the golden ratio mathematical theory developed by the 13th-century Italian mathematician Fibonacci, which explains many recurring patterns in nature, and is believed to quantify ideal proportions of beauty.
New acquisition spotlight ✨
Michael Schmidt's “Articulated 3-D Digitally Printed Gown” is the world’s first articulated 3-D digitally printed gown, designed exclusively for his friend and muse Dita Von Teese, a burlesque star and model.
