Martha Rosler has dedicate her artwork to tell stories about daily life. The video Vital Statistics of a Citizen, shows a group of researches mesuring Rosler body. First with clothes, then naked simultaneously they take notes of the data collection. A voice on off comment the researchers considerations about Rosler body.


With Rosler's performance it is exposed the rigid society towards a woman society. As a dictator, a regime that tells women how be in their own skin.

 

Vital Statistics is a shout and a reflexion of the social beauty standards, how women are taught to build and shape their own bodies and consequently becoming vigilant between each other.
