by Angela Dimitrakaki

Oxford Art Journal, 2007, v. 30, no. 2, pp. 205-232

The author writes of Ursula Biemann's video essays, marking them as a new form of materialist feminist cinema, which also makes discusses the hybrid practice of, and complex relationship between, art and documentation in video production. It is claimed that, though this practice, Biemann moves beyond the postmodern idiom and re-politicizes femininity.
