Two images from my current mail pile:
The cover of the current Medicus, from the Australian Medical Association (WA branch). The President’s Column is a wholehearted rejection of the national registration plan from COAG (Council of Australian Governments). Many pages of this volume have a black band on the top, giving the issue a memorial look.
A local women’s and children’s health update day advertisement. This one’s for fergus, who’s been studying Foucault, women, and the medical gaze. Click to enlarge.
* the Medicus magazine cover has a solid black background, with the text “National Registration and accreditation: An offer we should refuse.” There is a disembodied hand with marionette controller, the strings leading down to the word “Registration”.
* The women’s and children’s health update day is illustrated with the lower abdomen and upper thighs of a transparent woman. Her vagina, Fallopian tubes, and ovaries are visible as solid pink organs; her lower spine, pelvis and hips are also visible. She has no external genitalia, just the smooth Barbie look. Her vagina trails off into blurry nothingness near the lower end.
