you agree with Berger that women, unlike men, are continually watching themselves being watched by others and making adjustments based on how they perceive that others see them?
I think that Berger is right that many women watch themselves being watched by others and make adjustments in what can be seen because of the perceptions of others about them. Women do this because, as Berger correctly said, women are raised to become “women” according to how the public sees them, specifically, how men want to see them. As a result, many women want to be beautiful because this is what society says should be their primary goal in life- to be attractive so that they can be seen and be rewarded by men’s ownership of women.
Third, what do you think Berger means when he says that "Nudity is a form of dress?" Here are some paintings of nudes, some of which he discusses in the book and some others that he does not discuss. As you look at these paintings, do you find yourself agreeing or disagreeing with him about the culture of nudity in Western civilization? ( the pictures that was mentioned in above will be uploaded) again provide a short paragraph please.
Nudity is a form of a dress because it is a dress that men want to put on women, the dress of passivity and submission to male sexual desire. I agree with Berger that the culture of nudity in Western civilization is a process of telling women how they should act when they are seen by men. Nudity is not about women’s expression of their identities, including her sexuality. Nudity, as Berger shows, is a submission to men and their desires. Nude paintings are then in “languid” poses that are not about women actively showing their identity and sexuality, but women who are “available” to pleasure men. Nudity is about the culture of men who want to control women, not only sexually, but socially.
Berger believes that art is valuable when it is original or unique. I believe that what gives art value is that is
