Selected by Becky Kinder (A '04)
I would like to talk about passion and how it relates to action, political and artistic.
1. Erotic love as sociability: an alternative reality, by Roslyn W. Bologh in Love or Greatness: Max Weber and Masculine Thinking- A Feminist Inquiry, Chapter 14, p. 213-239
2. Transcendence: Interview with Gary Koepke in Louise Bourgeois: Destruction of the Father, Reconstruction of the Father, Writings and Interviews 1923-1997, p. 307-309
There are currently three retrospectives by women artists in major museums that speak to these ideas: Pipilotti Rist at the New Museum, Marilyn Minter at the Brooklyn Museum and Agnes Martin at the Guggenheim. I would be interested in talking about these shows, and their tactics and strategies, in relation to the texts.
See you at Skowhegan on Friday, December 16 at 6 pm!
