Liza Béar

During t​he ​late​ 1970s Liza Béar created an intriguing body of work that focuse​d​ on communications issues — specifically the use of media and the disempowered role of the public in communications policy. Central to Béar's ​early ​work ​was​ a desire to tie the means of production (technology) to the reasons for production (​economic advantage, national ideology, etc.). While Béar's concerns ​have diversified, her approach is always personal and experimental — collapsing the norms of narrative and documentary, subjective authorship and objective document.
