(New York, NY)Haley Bueschlen
I began working on Self Edition when I graduated in 2013. As an MFA student I felt like a commodity, so I decided to edition myself as one. In this durational performance, I legally changed my name each month to One Of Twelve, Two Of Twelve, Three Of Twelve for one year at New York Civil Court. Because of this, I have an excess of paperwork on file that begins to question and interfere with how I am identified and archived by the state and artworld.
