Visiting Filmmaker, Valie Export

Valie Export will screen and discuss her film Invisible Adversaries. Valie Export is a Viennese performance artist and video/film-maker. Her work is expressionist, the body her primary field of articulation. This feature length film, made in 1976 on a grant from the Austrian government, shocked the authorities with its feminist position, sexual imagery and negative critique of Viennese society. This film gives the standard science fiction/monster take-over plot an entirely new life - ironic, witty, and disconcerting. Presented: Invisible Adversaries (1976)
