Caught (1949), from the CineManArt series by ArtGraeco.
Caught is a melodrama of high-society power games and a nightmarish American dream with a tarnished happy ending. In the scene Re-Framed here, the sadistic husband has a heart attack and his disillusioned spouse chooses not to help him.
CineManArt is a series of photomontages, collages and digital art by ArtGraeco that recast characters of mainstream movies, change scenarios and subvert plots. These up-stagings add new dimensions – some solemn, others playful – to the stereotypes, the intolerance and homophobia cinema portrayed for over 100 years of filmmaking.
The CineManArt series by Artgraeco depicts what cinema could be and could have been more of: open, daring, defiant, fair, inclusive.
The homoeroticism here speaks to the tensions and desires that flow between those of the same gender.
