Feminist Performance Art: Autobiography and Body


From its inception, live art has been particularly attractive to feminist artists because it permits them to use their bodies and their voices in a manner that is less fixed than more traditional forms of representation such as painting and sculpture. In this lecture, I will look at particular instances of the feminist use of the autobiographical voice in conjunction with the artist’s body in order to analyze how feminist artists have strategically challenged the male privilege in the art world and cultural stereotypes regarding the role of women.
