"The Hammer of God" (by Suzie)

       Looking for analysis of the debate, I stumbled upon an NYT review of this tour by Malleus, an Italian trio whose posters depict naked women as deviant and demons.
While obviously raising a collective middle finger to both the gallery system and such concerns as “the politics of representation and gender,” Malleus has such a facility with graphic styles and cultural references that it far transcends the usual limitations of commercial art.
       In other words, it's OK to make money off sexism if male critics like the art. I wonder what Capt. Hammer might say.
