Carolee Schneemann


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. 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. The publication features 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. Archival material is interspersed throughout, offering intimate insights into Schneemann’s creative process. 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.
