In her classic Art Herstory, Freed combines elements of performance and animation to create a critical feminist rereading of art history. She inserts herself into well-known paintings and opens the canon for role playing with wide implications. The US-American video artist also explored the construction of gender-specific (role) images in Two Faces and Family Album, an autobiographical experiment.
