Angela Washko Live Performance

For this week’s Looking Outwards based on female artists, I looked into Angela Washko. Her works are very unique – a lot of times she is pushing our boundaries of what we can truly call ‘art’. One of the project I found intriguing was her project: “The Council on Gender Sensitivity and Behavioral Awareness in World of Warcraft”. This was a project where Washko would go into the virtual world in World of Warcraft to tell the players about feminism and gender equality. Angela Washko presented this by showcasing her discussing the issue ingame and on a projector. Personally, I found the work interesting as internet is often used as a place where people show blatant sexism and offend others, but Washko used it to attempt to educated the players. Her project can be seen here.
