Schneemann uses her naked body for subversive and provocational ends, rewriting art history and challenging the taboos that hamper the display of open, public, and female sexuality.
Nam June Paik
TV Cello Premiere
A manifesto of intermedial art: an unprecedented combination of sculpture, the moving image, live performance, sound and pop culture.
Laying on the ground with his head close to the lens, Acconci speaks directly into the camera and attempts to seduce his audience while smoking a cigarette: a disturbing reflection on the complex presence of the matrix of desire and manipulation inherent in the mass media.
Technology/Transformation: Wonder Woman
A work devoted to the mass-media depiction of women, power and sexuality based on the use of isolated and reiterated excerpts from the 1970s series Wonder Woman in which Diana Price, an ordinary woman, is transformed into the super-heroine.
Rock My Religion
Graham’s production may be interpreted as a reflection on the human condition in the post-modern era. In Rock My Religion the artist identifies the culture of American rock music in the postwar era as a cathartic, secular form of religion.

Using original journalistic material, Martha Rosler questions the authoritativeness of the media by pointing the finger of accusation at the deliberately propagandistic nature of information when it serves political interests.
