Putting Pink Into Politics

Zahra Stardust and Jinx Badlands

Trash Vixens Magazine, 2015

Photography and text


This set featured on the cover and six-page centrefold spread of the inaugural Australian alt erotica magazine Trash Vixens (‘trashing the perception of perfection’).


The images of the artist immersed in a pink bath accompany an article exploring the artist’s politico-sexual adventures. The words document experimentations with artifice and authenticity, subverting stereotype, and using the stage as a political platform.  They tell a stripper narrative: men not the only ones with a gaze, strippers not as the only spectacle. It tells of strippers as the directors, the subjects, the objects and the viewers, who share an experiential, sentient knowledge of intimacy and labour.
