  • Audrey Wollen is a feminist theorist and visual artist based in Los Angeles. Wollen uses social media, such as Twitter and Instagram, as platforms for her work on Sad Girl Theory, a theory which posits that internalized female sadness can be used as a radical and political action, separate from masculinized forms of protests such as anger and violence. She introduces this form of protest as an alternative to masculinized anger and violence.

Marcie Begleiter: 2004-05 Faculty Development Grant Report

 

Eva Hesse ephemera - diary page
Page from Eva Hesse's Diary (1977.52.58.13A-B)

Report:

I traveled to Oberlin, Ohio to review documents from the Eva Hesse Archives at Oberlin College's Allen Art Museum. While in residence for 5 days during the end of June I read and photographed hundreds of documents that were created and owned by Hesse during her short life. I am at work on a full length play that is inspired by her life and times.

The trip allowed me the access to a trove of unpublished materials and the time to read a portion of the thousands of pages of diaries, letters and other ephemera that Oberlin has in trust for the Hesse estate. This research has been invaluable to my understanding of both Hesse's private as well as public life and is being utilized in the writing of stage play that is loosely based on events from her life and the New York art scene of the 1960's.
