Utopias of Resistance: Strategies of Cultural Self-Determination

by Dot Tuer

catalogue, 1989, pp. 11-15

Art Gallery of Ontario, 1989

Dot Tuer frames the video work of Lisa Steele and Kim Tomczak against the metaphor of Plato’s cave. Tuer suggests the artists’ employment of current technology is a form of political activism and Utopian visions that are in direct dialogue with visual culture and a reality of late-capitalism.
