Construction as Dismemberment

"construction as dismemberment" was a term used by Hal Foster to read Hans Bellmer's progression of flexible sculptures that he documented in a series of photographs from the mid 1930's called La Poupee. 
These images he describes as from the dark underside of a twentieth-century world whose sociopolitical acts of construction have torn people and the social world apart and rebuilt it in monstrous ways.
