Carolee Schneemann

Carolee Schneemann developed her approach to making art in dialogue with action painting, a technique pioneered by Jackson Pollock.  Fed by feminist thinking of the 1960s and 1970s, she highlighted her own physical experience and point of view in her art. Schneemann’s interest in the relationship between power and bodies has prompted her to explore the Vietnam War, the Lebanese Civil War, and the September 11 attacks in multimedia installations and films. Throughout her body of work is a concern with the way images, especially those found in mass media, shape our regard for others.
