  • Heroics: Definitions

  • Artist: Sara Diamond
  • Year: 1984

  • Country: Canada
  • The Heroics series is an attempt to examine the heroism of women through a montage of still photos and visuals intercut with excerpts from approximately 30 women's stories about their sense of personal power and endurance. It was motivated by the artist's concern that heroism is male defined and that male language selects experiences and events within the context of patriarchal definitions of courage.

    HEROICS can be viewed as a series of six tapes or in the form of a compilation tape - HEROICS: DEFINITIONS - leased individually or as a whole.
