Pain of Work
In "The Common Self", by Lewis Hyde, the author argues against ideas of authorship/ownership in art, suggesting that subjecthood is inherently collective. This is m-utopian thinking because it assumes that every every subject is A-Gendered, A-raced, etc and ignores the "E-rased" subject. Those intersectional subjects who have historically been denied authorship/ownership by systemic racism, sexism, and other forms of discrimination. In "Conceptual Art and Femminism: Martha Rosler, Adrian Piper, Elanor Antin, and Martha Wilson" author Jayne Wark wrote that many feminists in the early 1970's were suspicious of "those who proclaim, from a position of power and privilege, 'the death of the author,' at precisely that historical moment 'when women have just begun to remember their selves and claim an agentic subjectivity'...[and] questions of subjectivity and "otherness" were just beginning to take on crucial significance" .
These issues are still relevant and thus the invisible work of women is reclamation. This work is only invisible to non-women, and in line with the nature of this work, invisibility is also reclaimed as a useful tool.
