Adrian Piper - MYTHIC BEING

This work from 1973 explores the artist's fascination with issues of identity including gender and race. This video documents her process and performance. She dresses as a man, goes into the street and experiences being a male rather than a female. How does one's gender inform who we are and how we are viewed?
