Linder’s photomontages combine images from women’s magazines and pornography to make powerful feminist statements, deconstructing media representations of women as ideals of femininity in the home or as consumable objects of male desire. She made them while studying Graphic Design in Manchester where she was involved with the punk scene. One of her photomontages shown here was used for the record sleeve of the Buzzcocks 1977 single Orgasm Addict. These works have much in common with the subversive practices of punk that was itself informed by the anti-establishment spirit of Dada.
