In Counter Culture, Steven Heller and Louise Fili take us on a colorful peep show of these sexy, sometimes erotic, but always fetishistic, plaster bodies and body parts. Theirs is a surreal look at how mannequins play on consumers' desires, acting as agents of seduction, beckoning us toward that ultimate actthe consumption of goods.
In this entertaining book, Heller and Fili unearth the fault line between sex and shoppingbetween voyeurism and "just looking"that underlies much of modern commerce.
