In the 1980s and 1990s performance, re-enactment, the melange of fiction and documentary, and "bad acting" were tactics used by video artists to unsettle notions of documentary realism, provide alternate readings of histories, elicit or manifest subjective interpretations of events, or provide a feminist sense of time. The work of Sara Diamond and the early work of the Women's Labour History Project used these tactics, which were drawn from film theory, feminist criticism and documentary practice. Sara Diamond will discuss these roots and draw from her works of personal documentary/autobiographical narratives and early docu-fiction.
Sara Diamond was an educator and curator for a decade at VIVO Media Arts Centre before founding the Banff New Media Institute (1995). She is currently President of OCAD University.
