Karen Finley in Grabbing Pussy

Karen Finley performed "Venus in Retrograde" at University of Maryland, Baltimore County (UMBC) on September 5, 2019. The performance was in two parts.

From UMBC show description:

In Part One, Grabbing Pussy, Finley considers embodiment and the invasion of the self, featuring selections from her provocative recent book of the same name. In Part Two, Parts Known — the political is personal, the personal is political — she examines the price and pain of personal tragedy amidst a political landscape of psychic dimensions.
