The World Upside Down

“The world upside down is one in which the symbolic order is turned on its head. It is a world visualized by artists where killer rabbits hunt humans and Superman is a hero of the Soviet Union. It is the Planet of the Apes and a planet where British aristocrats lose thier heads when they find themselves in ‘African’ fabrics. It is a place where Aboriginal North Americans dine out alfresco at Edouard Manet’s expense.” (Hill, 6)

The World Upside Down is a thematic collection of images full of satire where societal norms are reversed. I have cataloged 11 images from this title in the Digital Image Database.
