Abstract:

"If sex sells, then what better come-on for merchants of the repressed decades of the 1930s, 40s, and 50s than the come-hither gaze of a coquettish counter-top mannequin?" "In Counter Culture, Steven Heller and Louise Fili draw the curtain on a colorful peep show of commercial culture. Theirs is a surreal look at how mini-mannequins and other counter-top displays play on the unconscious desires of consumers, guiding them to that ultimate act - the consumption of goods." "Heller and Fili's mutual obsession with the art of popular culture has given us over eighty books. Their extensive collection of mannequins, evocatively photographed here by Tony Cenicola, is stored in a New York apartment. "At night," Heller winks, "they come alive.""--Jacket.
