Summary
This book explores the productive effects of bodily 'failure' in the sphere of visuality. The aim is to reflect on the human body's constant exposure to visual constraints and distortions, which are incorporated so strongly in everyday images of our bodies that they become invisible, while yet representative of cultural norms. By analyzing artistic literary and visual representations of imperfect, disabled, aging, queer, and monstrous bodies, this project exposes the "handicaps" of normative vision and opens up new ways of recognizing a multitude of corporeal existences and practices outside the norm
