Laura Kipnis Characteristics
Chicago-based videomaker Laura Kipnis' work is richly informed by her post-marxist, post-structuralist, post-feminist, post-everything sense of humor. Reflecting on the intellectual past, Kipnis presents a witty and insightful re-reading of the body, especially women's bodies, through the cultural theories and social history of Western Civilization. Her often irreverent tapes form piercing analyses of contemporary debates with an informed and unpretentious feminist slant.
