Abstract:
The theme of the oral history is “Challenges: Youth and Age.” We focused on exploring the evolution of Barbara Hammer as she experiences life and new challenges. In her youth Barbara reflects on her upbringing and memories with her grandma. In her age, Barbara discusses her battle with ovarian cancer. She makes connections between her health condition and her art, and how the cancer has impacted her both as an individual and an artist. Hammer also discusses plans for the future and in terms of her career, personal life, and tackling new challenges. The oral history exemplifies Barbara Hammer’s positive attitude, courage, and resilience.
