Frau Doctor doesn’t manage to attend all such events, but last Saturday with no migraine in sight, it was a perfect opportunity.
Frau Doktor is a performance character I created in 1979. Our painting instructor Gael Bennet @ UCCS, brought in performance artist Tony Blue (New York). His guest instruction proved to have a profound influence on me; I started creating characters and quickly arrived at “Frau Doktor” which came naturally to me, as I was raised in a German doctor’s household.
“Frau Doktor und Tante Hertrude im Labor”, the 1981 performance by myself & John Haeseler of Colorado Springs, at the “Docu-Da-Da-Dada” in Manitou Springs, started this pattern of Frau Doctor either performing or attending public events.
Frau Doctor in this pic here, is fully clad in Raux Hyde “Punk Rocks”.
