Collection contains nudity and a variety of body size (although no "skinny pix, other than a barbie doll).

10 Radical Art Projects That Celebrate Women’s Bodies
By Alison Nastasi
July 7, 2013

We’ve known for a while that Barbie’s body is impossibly petite. Her slender figure and absurdly small waist don’t leave enough room for her internal organs, and her tiny ankles and feet would actually force her to move around on all fours. Still, the Mattel icon remains a standard of beauty for many young girls — sometimes with damaging results. When we spotted an art project inspired by Barbie’s cruel measurements, which we feature past the break, we felt compelled to round up other artworks that challenge the status quo surrounding female body image. Some of these works confront and criticize the twisted ideologies, while others show solidarity in the struggle for more body-positive representations of women.

See the collection here

This one was really interesting. I was following the Kate Upton vs American Apparel saga as it went down.
