Geobodies: A Question of Boundaries

 

Artist Lecture & Panel Discussion

Video artist Ursula Biemann conducted a lecture on January 24 and a panel discussion on January 25, both in relation to Geobodies: A Question of Boundaries, an exhibition held at the Women's Studies Research Center from November 9, 2005 to January 31, 2006.

Biemann's video work examines the effects of geopolitical forces on women's bodies. The broad range of her cultural production includes documentary videos, gallery installations, books, and online archived materials. At the lecture, she spoke on her work in general and on her World Sex-Worker Archive in particular.

The event was cosponsored by the Women's Studies Research Center, the Poses Fund, the Martin Weiner Fund, the Wasserman Fund, and the Brandeis Pluralism Alliance.
