Barbara Hammer: The Female Closet
On the 20th Anniversary of it's release, Femmetopia Festival is thrilled to present Hammer's experimental documentary exploring the closeted and not-so-closeted lesbian histories of artists Alice Austen, Hannah Höch, and Nicole Eisenman. Utilizing groundbreaking research, newly discovered home movies, archival photographs, and other visual sources, this under-screened documentary provides a timely reminder of the importance of creating, archiving, and making accessible feminist artwork.
The screening will be accompanied by Barbara Hammers Dyketactics (1074) and Liz Rosenfields Dyketactics Revisted (2005).
With an introduction from Tara Brown (Fringe! Queer Film and Arts Fest)
