The installation Looped Scroll relates to the performance Interior Scroll by Carolee Schneemann from 1975. The Zoetrope shows a particular part of it. The sound for the installation is taken from a conversation Carolee Schneemann and Stefanie Wuschitz held in September 2010. Although 1939 Pennsylvania born media artist Carolee Schneemann produced this work in 1975, today, thirty-seven years later, young Austrian female media artists seem to be confronted with similar conditions. The animation replicates the radical gesture of her generation in a model-like trivialized form. With the persistence of a prayer wheel the gesture will be automated until it ceases to be needed.
