'Sex and consumerism in Japanese contemporary art is the point of departure for Consuming Bodies, which explores the connections that they and their visual representation have with modern life and culture... In this book the analyses of the imagery of sex and consumerism move far beyond the gallery and into the public and private spaces of the city and the nation, worlds where the complex network of relationships powdered by gender, class, race and commerce are directly encountered in both the fast-changing consumer market-place and the dominating ideologies within Japanese society.' - from book jacket.
