Printed Matter says: "Liz Barr discusses the historicity of makeup, as well as its continuous presence in the forefront of socio-cultural expression and education through media such as plays, television, films and other dramatic articulations of the human condition. Body Works contains several visual examples of seminal works by feminist artists and photographers, each contributing a unique point of reference for Barr’s multi-faceted presentation on the corporeal, pop culture and performance."

The ICA Shop says: "This zine references cultural commodities to observe fucked up systematic expectations on women’s bodies. Humorous, aware, intersectional and, um, so real."

Quimby's says: "Body Works is so brilliant and so beautiful and terrible. an essay in 6 parts, each looking at the places beauty intersects with safety, with health, desire, sex, performance, etc, with monochrome reproductions of related artworks. wise, well-written, thoughtful and lightly sickening. How do our bodies work and under which systems?"

Molly Soda says: "Liz makes some of my favorite zines, this one is my favorite."
