The Justice League of Gawkamerica

Jes Sachse


Sachse assembles a team of self-portrait superheroes. The Justice League of Gawkamerica is a whimsical reflection on representations of disability seen in popular broadcasting and cinema. Invoking a comic book influence and style – a genre that has long presented narratives about the disabled, from the mutants of Xmen to the superhuman Clark Kent himself – the League is here to infect, infantilize, and fetishize, using the force of visual culture.

Curated by Neill Cunningham
