Description

Traces the feminist icon Carolee Schneemann’s prolific six-decade output, spanning her remarkably diverse, transgressive, and interdisciplinary expression

Carolee Schneemann (1939–2019) was one of the most experimental artists of the twentieth and early twenty-first centuries. This book traces six decades of the feminist icon’s diverse, transgressive and interdisciplinary expression through Schneemann’s experimental early paintings, sculptural assemblages and kinetic works; rarely seen photographs of her radical performances; her pioneering films; and groundbreaking multi-media installations. Contributors shed new light on Schneemann’s work, which addressed urgent topics from sexual expression and the objectification of women to human suffering and the violence of war. An artist who was concerned with the precarious lived experience of both humans and animals, this book positions Schneemann as one of the most relevant, provocative and inspiring artists in recent years.
