Modern Art Oxford is hosting a film discussion club this summer within which all three screenings will be linked together by the theme of cultural, ethical and political issues that surround the representation of the human body. This theme ties in with the current exhibition at the gallery of the works of feminist artist Jenny Saville as well as London Olympics. The first film of the season, Pedro Almadovar's superb The Skin I Live In, is a powerful exploration of the construction and control of the female body in patriarchal order, in which construction and control happen quite literally and are executed by a plastic surgeon. The strong feminist themes within the film were overlooked in the media upon its release last year and need to be brought forward. A group discussion of the film with focus on gender issues in a public art gallery is a perfect way to do it. Come along and get involved in exploring this outstanding work of cinematic art.
