The Steven and Dorothea Green Critics' Lecture Series at Frost Art Museum Presents:
A ROOM OF ONE?S OWN: Women and Power in the New America a performance by Coco Fusco
Friday November 3 at 8pm Manuel Artime Theater 900 SW 1st Street Miami FL
The performance is free of charge and open to the public
A ROOM OF ONE?S OWN is Fusco?s performance monologue about the expanding role of American women in the War on Terror. She speaks as a female graduate of interrogator training school. Using power-point and simulated live feed video from actual interrogations, Fusco gives a briefing about how a career in military intelligence offers great opportunities to emancipated women of the 21st century. Her performance explores how the current administration?s rationalizations of detention and prisoner abuse have led to a reconsideration of the possible legitimacy of torture. Fusco also raises questions about feminism in the
21st century and the ways that political conservatives have appropriated the language of women?s liberation.
