Carolee Schneeman @ Barbican
8 September 2022 - 8 January 2023
Carolee Schneemann, a radical artist who remains a feminist icon and point of reference for numerous contemporary artists to this day. She addressed urgent topics from sexual expression and the objectification of women to human suffering and the violence of war, her work is concerned with the precarious lived experience of humans and animals.
The exhibition, Body Politics, features the artist’s early paintings; her experimental sculptural assemblages and kinetic works; her pioneering performance work in which she used her own body as a medium; her ground-breaking group performances; as well as her lyrical films and immersive multi-media installations.
