Having begun her career as an accomplished realist painter, elements of text and language became essential to Judith Braun a.k.a Weinperson’s (b. 1947, American) later work. Deploying activist strategies of widely distributed print media and use of slogans, Braun created a series of fifty-two announcement cards that she mailed weekly to her friends and colleagues. One side of each postcard is treated with provocatively captioned black-and-white images, while the other displays text that includes her newly adopted name Weinperson—that she, “in a wry gesture of political correctness,” changed from her married name Weinman, on the other. In this familiar, immediate space of a postcard, Braun addresses social constructions of identity, power, and sexuality.
