Sara's article "Being the Woman they Wanted her to be: Cornelia Schleime Performs her Stasi File" appears in the December 2016 (no. 24) issue of Gradhiva, a journal of art and anthropology published through the Musée du quai Branly in Paris. The text draws from contemporary theory on archival practice and argues that post-socialist discourse requires new methodologies and adaptive theories to explain artistic uses of surveillance archives. The article has been translated from English into French.
