Fashion Culture: Work! A Queer History of Modeling


On September 25, 2019, Elspeth H. Brown presented her book WORK!, an out-of-the-ordinary history of twentieth-century American culture and capitalism. Brown tells the largely unknown story of queer models and photographers, showing how queer sensibilities shaped the commercialized sexuality that’s at the center of consumer capitalism.
