Lot description
Jean-Christian Bourcart, Infertile Madonnas N°6, Frankfurt, 1992. Chromogenic print, 19 x 14 in. (48.3 x 35.6 cm). Edition 6 of 15. Signed, titled, dated and numbered on verso.

"I spent a week wandering around the bordellos in Frankfurt for the magazine Marie Claire. The clubs had three rules: no women, no photographs, no film. There were signs everywhere. The pimps had guns and the women use their high heels as weapons. A constant stream of men roamed the hallways, from morning till morning.

The women waiting. They knit, they gossip, they stare numbly at the TV screen. There was a floor for Western women, one for Asian women, one for Black women. I couldn’t get too close. In my jacket pocket I had concealed a small camera that was far too noisy. I would pretend to be interested, only to leave immediately, coughing to mask the noise of my camera." - Jean-Christian Bourcart
