Linder Sterling's Seven Most Iconic Collages

Renowned for her punk and post-punk game-changing aesthetics, Linder Sterling has made some of the most powerful prints of artistic history. A radical feminist, Linder has always focused on breaking down boundaries and expectations: cutting out images from porn or domestic women’s magazines, she created montages that shut down the treatment of female body as a commodity. Notorious for creating the artwork of the Buzzcocks’ Orgasm Addict cover, the work exemplified her aesthetic and beliefs: a naked woman with an iron for a head and smiling mouths instead of nipples. Here's a collection of the most iconic collage prints by Linder you should know…
