This magazine-style artist's book by the European artist Nicole Tran Ba Vang (born 1963) parodies the stereotypes and prejudices of advertising and fashion, exploring the fantasies of a consumer society. In the manner of Surrealist poet Joyce Mansour, she takes advertising and fashion magazines as her medium and revisits or "reviews" aspects of popular culture through a dexterous game of manipulation. Revue invites us to explore the fantasies of a society of images and consumerism and to question the representations of popular culture and the power of the media on our tastes, our values, our bodies and our minds. Collaborators include writers, philosophers, artists and art historians such as Marie Darrieussecq, Françoise Gaillard, Cécile Godefroy, Guy Limone, Michel Nuridsany, Jérôme Sans and David Zerbib.
