A student describes the images in Bowdoin College’s yearly Naked Art Show.
Students produce works of art in which they and/or their fellow students appear naked.
They are the bodies of college students invested in the future, determined to shatter the social coordinates of the privileged class’ modes of distinction in a highly choreographed way.

What if they just transformed the social coordinates into Cartesian space? Or maybe I’m misreading them; maybe they’re matching social prints with social pastels in that stye that’s oh so fashionable this spring.

I’m endlessly trying to understand how students at places like Bowdoin count as something other than members of at least one privileged class.
