Stories from a Generation: Video Art at the Woman's Building

Author : Cecilia Dougherty

In Stories from a Generation, Dougherty describes her discovery of an archive of early video art done by women at the Los Angeles Woman’s Building.  She discusses the importance of this place and its archive as a resource for the female art community in the area and how the communal atmosphere of the Woman’s Building influenced the collective nature of much early video art production, and how this idea of collectivity and communal practice continues to be relevant today.
