Her practice, teaching, and research confronted issues regarding the relationship between art and sexuality, gender, trans-sexuality, censorship, ethics, and pornography. A recipient of many prestigious grants and awards, her writing has been published in art, photographic, and scholarly journals, and her work has been exhibited internationally. www.cargocollective.com/degenevieve
