|Chapter title||Circulations and Co-operations: Art, Feminism and film in 1960s and 1970s London|
|Editors||Applin, Jo, Spencer, Catherine and Tobim, Amy|
The chapter examines the conditions for women's film and video practices in London in the early years of feminism and when an experimental use of the moving image was still in its infancy. Focusing on the artists Sally Potter, Annabel Nicolson, Carolee Schneemann and Barbara Schwartz ( as known as Barbara Ess), and the context of the London Film-makers' Co-operative and the Arts Lab, it explores the obstacles, as well as the opportunities, available to make art in the medium of film. It questions the extent to which the ideals of the women's movement impacted on individual artists working with film, and considers the influence of American visitors, such as Susan Hiller, Schneemann and Schwartz , on the idea of a feminist inflected film practice?
