Carolee Schneemann Kinetic Painting

Author(s): Sabine Breitwieser

conceptual art

This fully illustrated monograph is devoted
to the full range of Carolee Schneemann's
pioneering work. Unapologetically incorporating her body into her works of art,
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 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. Illustrations of her work are accompanied
by Schneemann's own commentary. Schneemann's work
emerges as a celebratory, liberating, and important aspect of
creative expression that stands in its own right--and stands the
test of time.
