Shorts: Defiant Bodies - Celebrating Barbara Hammer
An unquestionable icon of queer cinema, Barbara Hammer has consistently pushed the boundaries of bodily representation on film. From Dyketactics, a candid and playful exploration of lesbian identity, to Vital Signs, a contemplation on the relationship between life and death, this special focus traces some of Hammer's central artistic concerns from the 1970s to the early ’90s. Personal reflections, performative interventions and formal experimentation are woven together in a celebratory tapestry of this singular and daring artist.
