Ever since the acquisition in 2012 of Terminal Velocity, created by Carolee Schneemann in response to the events of 11 September 2001, Rochechouart Museum of Contemporary Art has been planning to present this work in the context of artists’ reactions to major world issues and a return of the historical genre in art today. Belonging to a first generation of female artists who militated for consideration of women’s art, Carolee Schneemann (b. 1939) also pioneered new video, film and performance practices, gaining a reputation for exploring issues around the human body and the place of women in society.
