“Flesh Dress for an Albino Anorectic,” or, paging Jana Sterbak

So, Gaga’s new cover for Vogue Japan is making the rounds on teh internets today:

Interestingly, nobody is mentioning that it’s basically a take on Jana Sterbak’s relatively famous and important piece of feminist art, “Vanitas: Flesh Dress for an Albino Anorectic,” first performed in 1987.

Gaga’s referencing of this piece is totally post-goth; feminist, at least in the way Sterbak’s piece is…that I dunno…
