Jacqueline Hassink (1966) is a Dutch conceptual artist who specialises in photography and film. She is mostly known for her global art projects portraying the world economy. In this project, she presented the economical globalisation of society. Hassink predominantly works from New York City, She worked with some of the most prominent CEOs in the world. A few other of her publications are "The Table of Power" (1996 and 2000), "Female Power Stations: Queen Bees" (1999), and "Mindscapes" (2003).
Car Girls is an oeuvre made by Hassink over the course of more than five years in which large car shows are photographed in seven different cities on three continents. The series captures moments of performances of these ladies when the look more like dolls than individuals. In an issue of the Aperture magazine, Francine Prose praised the work for its ability to make us rethink the association between car and eros as if it never crossed our minds, and to make us view it from a new perspective in all of its pure and excessive weirdness. Car Girls takes the subversive yet conceptually clever approach towards issues like gender, power and commodification. This luxuriously produced publication is designed by the renowned Irma Boom and is limited to an edition of 1,500 copies.
