Claude Cahun was a French artist, writer, poet, and photographer. Her work was personal and political and played with the concepts of gender roles. Her writings suggested she identified as agender, but most academics who wrote about her use feminine pronouns to talk about her and her work. She was a lesbian, from a bourgeois and Jewish background. Through art she interrogated her relationship with the world and with her own identity. The work of Cahun questioned the link between words and images, bodies, sex and social representations, subjects and identity.
