Critical Writing Index


by Jackie Larkin

Video Guide, Dec. 1986, v. 8, no. 4, p. 3

Jackie Larkin discusses feminine sexuality with reference to 'In The Dark', a performance video produced by Lisa Steele and Kim Tomczak. Jackie believes that In the Dark, stands as one of the few efforts by artists to reach beyond the critical/negative stance towards sex which has tended to characterize the women' movement. It points the way towards the creation of alternative images and expression of sexuality and sexual desire. Jackie also states that social boundaries of women's movement must crumble so that one is able to develope new attitudes towards sex.
