Mysteries of the Iconographies is Schneemann’s recent visual lecture in which she travels backwards and forwards in time. Recurring formal properties are analyzed beginning with obsessive childhood drawings of a staircase. The mysteries of a notched stick, paper folds, indentations, the slice of line in space are followed as unexpected structural motives, up to and including her recent photographic grids and objects.

Carolee Schneemann, multidisciplinary artist, transformed the definition of art,ഀ਀especially discourse on the body, sexuality, and gender. The history of her work is characterized byഀ਀research into archaic visual traditions, pleasure wrested from suppressive taboos, the body of theഀ਀artist in dynamic relationship with the social body.
