Maria Lassnig may be known best for her paintings, but the artist was also a pioneer in the world of film. Lassnig’s work often focused on themes of autobiography, friendship, New York City, and, perhaps most ambitiously, physical sensation. More specifically, the filmmaker aimed to represent subjective corporeal feelings in her art.

In this program, scholars and individuals who are intimately familiar with Lassnig provide context to her film work, as well as her participation in the Women/Artists/Filmmakers Inc. collective.
