I wrestle with these topics of ownership and respect in the following writings:

The Female Painter – curatorial statement for Body Anxiety, 2016
Self-Made Supermodel – thought piece published in Rhizome, 2016
The Instagram Model as Art World Question – curatorial statement for Nu Matr-E-archs, The Wrong Digital Biennale, 2018
