In the 1960s and 1970s actionism and happenings provided a foundation for performance art, the exceptional form in which women are as numerous but more recognized as men. Three generations of artists set out in As She Likes It to formulate a statement on our times, using the expressive power of voice and body, dispensing with exclusion of the male world more self-confidently than in the early years.
