The couple in the cage a Guatianaui odyssey ( Visual )

Performance artists Guillermo Gómez-Peña and Coco Fusco travel and appear before the public in four different countries as two "Guatinaui Indians", members of a fictional "newly discovered" tribe who had agreed to be displayed at malls and museums around the world, after the manner of human exhibition in the 19th and early 20th centuries. These performances are intercut with archival footage of humans displayed in cages as freaks and curiosities. Conceived as a "satirical comment on the past", the performances evoke various responses, including huge numbers of people who are convinced they are real and do not find the idea of "natives" locked in a cage objectionable

The videos of Sadie Benning by Sadie Benning ( Visual )
5 editions published between 1999 and 2008 in English and held by 61 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"A compilation of Sadie Benning's video works produced between 1989 and 1998. Sadie Benning is a lesbian videomaker who began making videos when she was 15 years old using a Fisher-Price Pixelvision toy camera. Benning's early works were made in the privacy of her childhood bedroom, using scrawled and handwritten text from diary entries to record the thoughts and images that reveal the longings and complexities of a developing identity. Evoking in turn playful seduction and painful honesty, Benning's floating, close-up camera functions as a witness to her intimate diaristic revelations and as an accomplice in defining her evocative experimental form. Her work emerges from a place half-innocent and half-adult, with all the honesty, humor, and real desperation of a personality trapped and uncomfortable, just coming to self-awareness. Her more recent work moves beyond the Pixelvision camera into animation and film"--Http://www.vdb.org

Gendered confrontations ( Visual )
3 editions published between 1995 and 2008 in English and held by 54 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
These feminist video works challenge the reigning but waning modernist and materials-based discourse of the '70s, as well as psychoanalytic theory and the construction of the subject. Video is used to examine one's own life and the experiences of female friends and family, and to question one's own relationship to what is coming to be understood as "her"/history. As histories of women in the arts and in society are explored, critical attention is also focused onto speculation about the existence of an essential female aesthetic, and the position of women as objects of the (male) gaze
