Carolee Schneemann

- In all Schneeman's montages, films and performances, there is an insistent repetition of disparate motifs - within each work and from work to work. In this video, Beatty uses the constant relocation of themes to suggest a cumulative continuity; from montage to montage, each motif is readjusted, repositioned, dismembered and remembered in new contexts.
