Title: Exposing the Body, Exploring ‘homo respondens’, and Rethinking Human-Nature Relations as Matrix for New Social Visions: When Short Film Meets Happening in the Works by Carolee Schneemann and Yoko Ono
Publisher: Universidad de Guadalajara
Description: The essay at hand looks at the ways in which the female body is revisited, redefined and connected to the world in selected experimental short films and happenings by two female artists, Yoko Ono and Carolee Schneemann. The analytical focus lies on the shifting relations between subject and object and human and non-human world within their artistic practice. Their presentation and representation of bodies in experimental short films and performances is strongly embedded in the happening culture of the 1960s. The two artists feel at home in both genres; hence, they move freely between film and performance art. Both select the undressing, naked as well as exposed body to express new visions of relationality beyond human subjectivity. Bakhtin’s discourse on the grotesque body and its dialogic potential serves as a theoretical approach.
