Biography

The more open attitude towards sexuality characteristic of the sixties created a greater tolerance towards erotic images that in turn led to their extensive use in advertising. In his works, K.P. Brehmer investigated the way women were presented in the mass media, where they were often used as a decorative element. His collages are full of sensual images of women, extracted from newspapers and magazines, critiquing advertising’s use of such images and their eroticism for profit. The artist often juxtaposed representations of women with images of war or allusions to consumer society as a means of exposing the excesses of capitalism.
