In an analysis of Mary Kelly’s early works in film, performance, and photography, Chapter Two traces the links between feminist labor activism and Kelly’s emerging commitment to psychoanalysis. I analyze her political aesthetic in relation to Andy Warhol’s Factory and Laura Mulvey’s important feminist polemic on cinema.
