that women use art as a means of expression so as to influence the consciousness of all of us, let our

ideas flow into the cocial constrution of reality to create a human reality.

Valie Export

All of this work must be understood as having been constructed and machined, yet in the end that is

not the issue--that is not the matter--what is the matter is that the affect, transcendence, and

exchange, which precludes the machined and is the happening. A happening which is just the same

as the material. It happens without religious transcendence, It happens without mythic

transcendence. It happens without capitalist transcendence.

Diana Thater
