Abstract

Contemporary Japanese visual artist Murakami Takashi's theory of “superflat” Japanese arts and culture is nationalist and masculinist. However, women artists—including Yanagi Miwa and the performers of the Takarazuka Revue and Kegawa-zoku—use two-dimensional aesthetics to challenge the nationalist and masculinist construction of Japanese womanhood.
