Originally a painter, Carolee Schneemann is a pioneer of extended media, from her choreography for the Judson Dance Theater (1962–63) to the sensuous group ritual performance Meat Joy (1964), her self-shot erotic film Fuses (1965), and the anti–Vietman War “kinetic theater” of Snows (1965). Schneemann joins us to discuss these works and her more recent multichannel video installations in relation to MoMA’s recent acquisition of a 1976 version of Up To and Including Her Limits. This work of extended drawing was enacted as Schneemann was suspended nude in a tree surgeon’s harness for over eight hours. Sustained drawings occurred for over six years in various spaces, including The Kitchen in New York, the Berkeley Art Museum, and various locations in Europe.
