1. Wojton, Margaret Anne. LOVE AND LOSS: THE WORKS OF FELIX GONZALEZ-TORRES, THE AIDS EPIDEMIC AND POSTMODERN ART.

Degree: MA, College of the Arts / School of Art, 2010, Kent State University

The work of Felix Gonzalez-Torres reflected the profound impact of AIDS on American society and those living with the disease during the late 1980s and 1990s. Gonzalez-Torres who was both homosexual and HIV positive, created artworks to eulogize the loss of his partner, and incorporated a message of love to transcend societal prejudices against those in the gay community living with AIDS. Gonzalez-Torres simplified his artistic compositions to redefine the role of the viewer, author and the function of postmodern art. Gonzalez-Torres included and reinterpreted early postmodern art practices of the mid-1960s, such as Minimalism and Conceptualism into his artworks so that a new generation could be exposed to these groundbreaking movements. He incorporated the viewer as an integral component of the compositions; their participation was necessary to complete the meaning found in his artworks. Gonzalez-Torres encouraged the viewer to interact, take parts of the artworks with them, and at times even take creative control over the installation of the artworks. By doing so he created an intimate bond between the viewer and subject that resulted in a loving and unified community. Advisors/Committee Members: Kumar, Navjotika (Committee Chair), Smith, Fred (Committee Co-Chair).

2. Kline, Scott B. Anselm Kiefer: Remembering, Repeating, and Working through the Past.

Degree: MA, College of the Arts / School of Art, 2013, Kent State University

Anselm Kiefer is a contemporary German artist who deals with the issues of his country's past. Kiefer employs a multi-media approach in his works which range from painting and sculpture to large scale installations. Several decades of his work can be related to specific essays by Sigmund Freud. They are Repression (1915), Mourning and Melancholia (1917), and Remembering, Repeating and Working Through (1914). These essays can be compared to the issues Germany dealt with after World War II. Kiefer also created works based on the poetry of Paul Celan. His poem Death Fugue inspired Kiefer to create works that included the subject of the ideal Jewish woman Sulamith and the ideal German woman Margarete. Celan wrote poetry based on his firsthand experience as a prisoner in a Nazi labor camp during the war, while Kiefer is creating works from the perspective a generation after the war. Later in his career, Kiefer begins to create works based on the Kabbalah and ideas of Jewish mysticism. His most monumental work to date is The Seven Heavenly Palaces located at Hangar Bicocca in Milan, Italy. It represents the seven palaces that one must pass through before reaching the presence of God. Advisors/Committee Members: Kumar, Navjotika (Advisor).

3. Haden, Heather Jean. The Aesthetics of Unease: Telepresence Art and Hyper-Subjectivity.

Degree: MA, College of the Arts / School of Art, 2015, Kent State University

This thesis critically analyzes installations of telepresence art since 1986 and argues that the phenomological experience of engagement in telepresence suggests a new state of subjectivity at the end of the twentieth century: the hyper-subject, an overlapping of self and multiple others. I place telepresence art firmly in the genealogy of Surrealism by comparing artworks to Hans Bellmer's infinitely recombinant doll, La Poupee. While Bellmer represented the physical anagram of the body through the doll, telepresence art produces psychic anagrams of participants in the virtual sphere. Installations of telepresence art by multiple artists are probed to critically engage the artistic design of each, including humanoid telerobots, screen-based telepresence, and human avatars, and to assess their efficacy in upholding telepresence as what Lombard and Ditton define as "the perceptual illusion of non-mediation." By integrating psychoanalysis, post-anthropocentric posthumanism, and feminist disability theory, I examine telepresence art as a platform for social change. This research contributes the first art historical application of the uncanny valley to telepresence artworks, the first comparison of telepresence art to Bellmer's La Poupee, and advocates for more art historical research on the hyper-subject as a new state of viewing and experiencing art in the twenty-first century. Advisors/Committee Members: Zavota, Gina (Committee Co-Chair), Kumar, Navjotika (Advisor).
