by Nell Tenhaaf

Critical issues in Eletrocnic Media, 1995, pp. 219-233

Albany, NY: State University of New York Press, 1995

Nell Tenhaaf invesigates the masculinist (theoretically and philosophically male dominated) discourse that underlies our technological culture. The author suggests that, in turn, women video artists have challenged this discourse by creating a feminist project of freeing up the female body from its status as reflection to be looked upon.
