The Origin of the World

Artist: Gilbert Hage
Date: 22/11/2018
Type: Conceptual, Intervention, Site-specific

Gilbert Hage intervenes with a staged photograph that references the most censored artwork of all times by Gustave Courbet. The path of the artwork says a lot about the mechanisms of self-censorship that maintain a necessary balance between prohibition and transgression, erotic pulses and social control.
