"Superwoman" comments on the representation of the female body in popular culture. With deadpan humor Kogelnik challenges comic book clichés, which portray female superheroes-if they include them at all- clad in sexy, impractical costumes. This work is likely a self-portrait, as the artist often wore flamboyant clothing like the aviator cap and large sunglasses seen here kogelnik regularly used scissors in her art practice to create stencils and vinyl silhouettes.

I'm not disgusted in the Americans that show so much hate towards one another. I'm ashamed of our government and American values for allowing systematic oppression in a country that we call "the land of the free." We're all human. We're all American. Because as long as there are other groups who are oppressed, we must remember that.
Living just enough, just enough for the city 🏵
