Carolee Schneemann



Will meets up with Carolee Schneemann at Electronic Arts Intermix, where she is working on a new project even as a retrospective of her work at New Paltz's Samuel Dorsky Museum of Art, called Carolee Schneemann: Within and Beyond the Premises, is well under way. She talks about the retrospective--which traces not only her most famed performance, film and video work but also her paintings, installations and writings--as well as her most recent pieces, some of which reworks and elaborates upon her earlier work, others of which utilize new technologies to add entirely new work to her ceaselessly innovative and curious oeuvre (34 minutes).

Carolee Schneemann



Multidisciplinary artist (and pioneer of the form) Carolee Schneemann, has elevated the discourse on the body, sexuality, and gender through her work and life. She was a full participant, and a courageous one, in the cultural turbulence of the sixties; confronting taboos, challenging traditions, and embracing new forms. Her ongoing work as a painter and her merge into the downtown New York performance scene of that era (Judson Dance Theater, Warhol's Factory, assorted Happenings and kinetic theater) lead to her own performances and films such as the notorious 1964 Meat Joy, a "celebration of flesh as material," a living montage of naked bodies, raw fish, chickens, and sausages. And that's just the first few years.



In this conversation with filmmaker, archivist, and historian MM Serra, Schneemann discusses her film Fuses at length along with anecdotes and reflections on life and work, sex and tech, cats and people, and much more.
