In looking forward to "Interventions in the Interview, Fugitive Subjects," the artists and organizer of the event would like to share some suggested readings.

These readings include an essay on bad movies; a series of transcripts from the 60-hour performance Doll Closet (a 10-minute excerpt of the documentation of the performance will be shown); and a letter written from Amber Hawk Swanson to the doll that was made in her image, Amber Doll. These readings are not mandatory; however, they might provide additional context for the videos and the discussion.
