Eleanor Antin, "The King," 1972. Video (black and white, silent), New York. Antin will be reading from her memoir entitled, Conversations with Stalin. An excerpt:I was what was called in the days of the old left, a red diaper baby. My mother was a Stalinist and though I had a father, nobody ever listened to him because he was just a socialist and everybody knew they were wimps. It was hard in those days, senator McCarthy was putting people in jail, people were losing their jobs, but we were strong because we always knew what was right. Comrade Stalin told us. Or he would have told us if he wasnt so far awayThese are my recollections, more or less, about growing up with the many romantic, economic and psychological problems young people face in our country and how by the end of the day, Comrade Stalin always solved my problems in his own inimitable way, by fucking them up.

silver gelatin photograph, mounted on board, 13 x 9 inchesEleanor Antin was transforming herself in photographs in ways that were more haunting, funny, varied and complexas well as more human. Where Antin was clearly on a quest for self-knowledge, Shermans portraits come off as unflattering commentary on the aspirations and ways of life of others, especially in this series, which struck me as ageist, sexist, and just plain mean.
