Psycho-analysis has a common basis with biology, in that it presupposes an original bisexuality in human beings (as in animals). But psycho-analysis cannot elucidate the intrinsic nature of what in conventional or in biological phraseology is termed ‘masculine’ or ‘feminine’: it simply takes over the two concepts and makes them the foundation of its work. When we attempt to reduce them further, we find masculinity vanishing into activity and femininity into passivity and that does not tell us enough.’ -Sigmund Freud. ‘A case of homosexuality in a woman’.Video Artists on Tour catalogue, 1980, Arts Council.
