Dissertation Progress Friday - The List Edited... so close!

by - Saturday, January 14, 2012

Ok, yesterday morning I finally met with my adviser, so the list has been edited- yet there are still three options! So this is where we stand now:

Option 1- The german speakers seemed like her favorite idea- Valie, Ulrike Rosenbach, Katherina Sieverding, and a little bit of Rebecca Horn

Option 2- Laurie Anderson and Joan Jonas- My professor wasn't so crazy about the Yoko Ono idea, because she is a generation before them, but she does like the comparison of the two

Option 3- A Laurie Anderson monograph- I'll be honest, the more I think about this idea, the more I love it. Laurie Anderson is definitely at a level where it is shocking there isn't more written about her, she really combines many of my concerns, and she brings in my favorite art critic ever- Craig Owens.

So right now, this is how I am leaning, but I need to figure out what and where the archives are and move quickly toward making a decision. I am just ready to really get to work, you know? So the goal for the weekend is to watch and read as much as I can about these artists to keep getting a sense of what clicks for me theoretically. I feel like it's going alright, but I want to keep it moving.
