UN/MASKED, Memoirs of a Guerrilla Girl On Tour! follows the surprising 25 year journey of a young, New York City actress swept off her feet by a rising movie star who carries her to Malibu and back for a three-plus year love affair that is both fantastical and physically dangerous. When Nicole Brown Simpson and Ron Goldman are murdered in Brentwood she hears a bell go off, awakening her angry, activist spirit. Always an outsider, she takes one step further into invisibility and becomes a Guerrilla Girl, a feminist activist who never appears in public without wearing a rubber gorilla mask and who uses the name of a dead woman artist instead of her own. As a Guerrilla Girl, Aphra Behn creates comedic art and theater that blasts the blatant sexism of the theater world while proving feminists are funny at the same time.
These two narrativesthat of a young victim of domestic violence at the hands of a successful film actor and that of an artist so fed up with sexism in the theater world that she puts on a gorilla mask and takes the name of a dead woman artist to provoke changehave been lived by one woman. Donna Kaz offers her compelling firsthand accountilluminated by more than thirty behind-the-scenes photographs, stickers and posters of her transition from a silent observer to an unapologetic activist.
This is the memoir of a woman-turned-survivor-turned-radical-feminist who takes off her mask and, by merging her identities, reveals all.
