Steadfast in her cultural, political and social critique for over 50 years, Judith Bernstein has used her phallic drawings to address themes such as militarism, sexual aggression, and unjust gender relations. Bernstein’s Jahresgabe is one of her most iconic motifs, which she put on monumental charcoal drawings in the 1970s. The screw hybrids are a combined metaphor: they are sexual, they are anti-war and they are Feminist!
