Great review of Lynn Hershman Leeson's film !Women Art Revolution that screened at the MOMA.
The film has also taken on new life as a project/website : RAW/WAR to keep the discussion going
"The RAW/WAR project is generated from the idea that history is about access and authorship and that we, as a global digital community, can now all participate in its creation and change the way history itself is constructed. Using new technologies, current and future generations can create their own histories, breaking the cycle of omission and erasure.
RAW/WAR takes the form of an interactive, community-curated archive and an accompanying installation that provide a forum in which users can come together, share their stories and collaboratively contribute to the history of women's art."
‘If you poured water on each frame, it would become a novel,’ Gloria Steinem said with wonder during her introduction to a recent screening of Lynn Hershman Leeson’s !Women Art Revolution (2010), at the Museum of Modern Art, New York. It seemed an apt description of a film that distills hundreds of hours of interviews with artists, art historians, critics and curators about feminist art into excerpts interspersed with stills and snippets of archival footage documenting performances, anti-war and civil rights protests and other epochal events. An at times breathlessly paced collage, !W.A.R. aims to fill in historical gaps while stirring viewers to look beyond what appears on screen.
