Feminist artist Katie Sfetkidis examines her own place within a history of feminist performance art through an exploration of seminal feminist artists Carolee Schneemann and Vanessa Beecroft.  Drawing on the documentary archive of these two artists – including text and imagery –  Sfetkidis has created a new body of work that recreates and reinterprets their performance work, offering a critical reflection of the changing understanding of feminism in the fifty years that spans these artists careers; in particular the changing relationships to the body, sexuality and capitalism.
