Feeling Blind: Fur, Female Fetishism and the Politics of Desire
MA thesis, Goldsmiths University of London (UK), 2015
“It’s a pleasure when you encounter a piece of writing that forces you to chase a new idea across texts you thought you knew well!”
'Feeling Blind: Fur, Fetishism and the Politics of Desire’ combines the traditional research essay with annotated vignettes and embedded in memoir, performing an argument for interdisciplinarity and liminal methodologies. Through this I research animal liminality in women’s performance art between 1970 — 2000, in particular through the work of Rebecca Horn, Ana Mendieta and Catherine E. Bell.
