The result of over five years of Super-8 and 16mm filming on New York City streets. Lost Book Found combines documentary and narrative approaches into a complex meditation on city life. Influenced by the work of Walter Benjamin, Cohen said "I found connections between the street vendor, Benjamin's 'flaneur', and my own work as an observer and collector of ephemeral street life."

Grapefruit( Visual )

2 editions published in 1989 in English and held by 49 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Featuring an all-female cast, this film plays with the romanticized history of the iconic Fab Four, gently mocking John and Yoko's banal squabbles and obsessive rituals of self-display. The film works on many levels to reposition the mythic tale of the Beatles boy's life by casting '80's women in mod drag, effectively mapping the lesbian sub-culture onto heterosexual mass culture. Discounting the importance of historical accuracy, Dougherty gives an incisive reading of the creation of pop culture icons with John Lennon portrayed as a projection of our society's collective needs and desires
Pistolary! : films and videos by Peggy Ahwesh : three DVDs with essays( Visual )

1 edition published in 2006 in English and held by 48 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Drawing from horror films, psychoanalysis, and the writings of Bataille, her films and videos are sublime studies of culturally complex subjects: sexual pleasure, relationships, and notions of the self"--Conversations at the edge
Fast trip, long drop by Gregg Bordowitz( Visual )

2 editions published between 1993 and 2004 in English and held by 47 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In the spring of 1988, video-maker/activist Gregg Bordowitz tested HIV-antibody positive. He then quit drinking and taking drugs and came out to his parents as a gay man. This imaginative autobiographical documentary began as an inquiry into these events and the cultural climate surrounding them. While writing the film, a close friend was diagnosed with breast cancer and his grandparents were killed in a car accident. The cumulative impact of these events challenged his sense of identity, the way he understood his own diagnosis, and the relationships between illness and history"--Video Data Bank website

Gendered confrontations( Visual )

1 edition published in 2008 in English and held by 15 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
Explorations of presence, performance, and audience( Visual )

1 edition published in 2008 in English and held by 14 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The artists included in this video anthology moved into video from performance, sculpture, photography, writing, and dance. They used the video camera and monitor as time-based tools to investigate perception or as performative strategies within the paradoxically intimate and distanced theater of the monitor. In most of the pieces, the performer constructs an active relationship with the audience, and the viewer's awareness is specifically acknowledged under both live and remote viewing conditions
Investigations of the phenomenal world--space, sound, and light( Visual )

1 edition published in 2008 in English and held by 14 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In this video anthololgy, the body of the artist functions as one kind of instrument in the presence of, or complicated by, the video and audio recording instruments. Issues of attention such as boredom and exhaustion of both the artist and the audience, are embraced as part of the potential dynamic range of the work. Some of the video projects also propose structural relationships between natural or biological and electronic systems
Approaching narrative--"There are problems to be solved"( Visual )

1 edition published in 2008 in English and held by 14 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The works in this videocassette establish inventive formal staging for epic story-telling. These projects have no interest in seducing an audience into accepting a semless narrative illusion of reality. Instead, problems are constructed around and audience's understaning of the real and construction of their attention. Audiences have to work to derive meaning from videotapes that seek to rupture expectations of narrative closure and illusions of an authorial point of view. Problems to be solved are housed in radically revisioned theaters, and the experimental pieces also challenge public storytelling and seek to decentralize cultural mythmaking by inventing new forms of theatrical space
