Maria Lassnig’s extension of feminist body art in relation to the women artists’ group the Women/Artist/Filmmakers in New York (1968-1980)
The dissertation in art history deals with the Austrian painter and filmmaker Maria Lassnig. The focus is on her work of the New York years from 1968 to 1980 and her role in the filmmakers' group of the Women/Artist/Filmmakers. In the context of the feminist avant-garde, the contemplation of her "Body-awareness-paintings" and her experimental films as well as her animations should promote a comprehension of body art across media.
