Carolee Schneemann : Kinetic Painting
'From early figurative paintings, through collages and video installations, to her radical work in dance and performance, Ms. Schneemann has consistently — insistently — made the personal political, bridging divides between eras and cultures, even species. The exhibition catalog, with commentary by the artist, is part history, part diary, and captures, to the degree print can, the electricity she has generated.' - New York Times
Carolee Schneemann emerged as one of the leading forces in the feminist art movement of the 1970s. This wide-ranging book follows Schneemann's remarkable career in its entirety.The monograph that accompanied a show in Salzburg and at MoMA shows the immense range of Schneemann's oeuvre: paintings, assemblages, performances, experimental films and video installations. Including the controversial works for which she is most famous, such as Eye Body, Meat Joy,and Interior Scroll, this volume takes a critical look at various themes in the artist's career, focusing particularly on what the artist termed "kinetic painting." Essays on Schneemann's personal politics, her experimental film, and the purposeful ambiguities of her pieces offer clear-eyed perspectives on the brilliance of her work.
