Female bodies
and cultural biases
Carolee Schneemann

“Kinetic Painting” tells about the artist’s  six-decade career,
in the roles of “both image and image-maker”

  MoMa Ps1 presents Kinetic Painting, the first retrospective of Carolee Schneemann, one of the most influential artists of the second part of the 20th century. It focuses on the social construction of the female body and the cultural biases of the history have had significant influence on different artists generations.  Kinetic Painting considers Schneemann’s oeuvre within the context of painting by tracing the developments that led to her groundbreaking innovations in performance, film, and installation in the 1970s, as well as her increasingly spatialized multimedia installations from the 1980s, 1990s, and 2000s.
