In 1968, the Paris-based Argentinian conceptual artist Lea Lublin exhibited herself with her eight-month-old son in a Paris gallery (Yvon Lambert) for three weeks in what was considered a scandalous exhibition. The title, The Striptease of Jesus as a Child, was a conversation with the public on the subliminal eroticism in Christian paintings. Relatively unknown to an international audience until now, Lublin was part of a generation of feminist artists such as Judy Chicago and Hannah Wilke fiercely committed to overcoming the boundaries separating art and life. This profusely illustrated and comprehensive catalog of her sensual, challenging and didactic work spans three decades of photographs, drawings, wall installations and videos, and includes documentation of a reconstruction of one of her most ambitious works, Fluvio Subtunal (1969), as well as off-site public interventions. Featuring contributions by Monika Bayer-Wermuth, Thibault Boulvain, Catherine Francblin, Isabel Plante, Teresa Riccardi and Stephanie Weber, plus translations of Lea Lublin’s writings and a key text on Lublin by Pierre Restan from 1969.
