Bright, bold pictograms from Yang Liu revisit the roles, relationships, and age-old cliches of male and female experience. Imagine a setting in which a man wearing a dress might be as habitual as a woman in trousers. Where a woman exposing herself in public isnt sexy, but as creepy as a male flasher. Where professional status and success presents the same prospects for both sexes. In this first in a new series for TASCHEN, leading graphic designer Yang Liu tackles one of the hottest and one of the oldest topics of all: he and she. Drawing on the experiences, challenges, and many perspectives of men and women shes encountered in her own life, Yang Liu presents the vast, swirling question of gender in vivid, binary pictogram form. Dealing with a whole host of situations, from the bedroom to the boardroom, Yang Lius designs are as simple and accessible in their presentation as they are infinite in the associations, evocations, and responses they elicit. Combining stereotypes with topical discrepancies, this fresh approach to the roles and relationships of men and women is above all an effort to synthesize a notoriously thorny issue into a fun, refreshing graphic form to lighten and enlighten and encourage mutual understanding and tolerance.
