Biography Carolee Schneemann
From the London Guardian by Robert Clark

The enduring image is of the naked artist reading a text from a long scroll that she unfurls from her vagina. Carolee Schneemann performed Interior Scroll over 25 years ago. All we are presented with here are two photographic images of the event, but they are images that define a significant moment in feminist art history.
Schneemann's anti-life-class pose contributed to bringing several centuries of passive cultural acceptance of the idealized female nude to an end. After that, it seemed plain ridiculous for a circle of men to sit down and size up a reclining nude woman in the name of art.
