Summary Consuming Bodies explores the themes of sex and consumerism in contemporary Japanese art and how they connect with the wider conditions of modern Japanese culture. Engaging with performance, digital media, painting, sculpture and including the diary of a sex worker, it features essays by writers, historians, curatorians, curators and artists. With more than 160 powerful and sometimes controversial images, this book is bound to provoke debate about this little-discussed aspect of Japanese culture.
