Published by Primary Information. Foreword by Alex Kitnick.
This facsimile edition of Note(s): Work(ing) Process(es) Re: Concerns (That Take On / Deal With) was completed in 1977 as a single handmade copy by the multimedia artist Dara Birnbaum (born 1946). It includes notes for works such as Attack Piece, Mirroring and Pivot: Turning Around Suppositions, where Birnbaum interrogates the role of mass media in contemporary society and its means of production through sketches, transcripts, photographs and diagrams for installations and videos that take as their subject film clichés, gender roles, patriotism, emotional states and psychology, among others.
Note(s) documents her contributions to the burgeoning Conceptual art movement and underscores her significant but under-recognized influence upon the emergence of feminist art, video art and the Pictures Generation.
