<nettime-ann> COCO PERFORMS AT PS 122 SEPT 28- OCT 1


.
A ROOM OF ONE?S OWN:
Women and Power in the New America
a performance by Coco Fusco

Presented by PS 122 in conjunction with Creative Time

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.
