Stella Waitzkin (1920-2003) explored the book as sculptural form for more than three decades, resulting in hallucinatory assemblages and sculptures that examine ideas relating to memory, transformation, interpretation and gender roles. Waitzkin was a founding member of Women Artists in Revolution (WAR) in 1969, and made feminist performances and films in the 60s and 70s, in addition to her signature sculptural works in cast resin.

Documentation for this event is housed in The Feminist Art Project Archives at Rutgers University.
