Artist Biography

Dyke Action Machine! (DAM!) is artist Carrie Moyer and photographer Sue Schaffner.

Since 1991, DAM!'s public art projects have dissected mainstream advertising by inserting lesbian images into recognizably commercial contexts, reclaiming public and virtual spaces from the encroachments of corporate sponsorship. DAM! began as a working group of the 1990s activist organization, Queer Nation, and soon evolved into a stand-alone agitprop duo. DAM!’s projects have been included in exhibitions throughout the U.S. and Europe and have been anthologized widely. “Straight to Hell: 10 Years of Dyke Action Machine!” was mounted at the Yerba Buena Center for the Arts in 2002.
