Encirclement from the series Body Configurations In these works, EXPORT, a self-proclaimed feminist, used her body as a measuring and pointing device, encircling the curve of a curb or conforming to the angle of a corner—actions designed to defy the conformist culture of her native Austria in the postwar period. Most of the pictures from this series, Körperkonfigurationen (Body Configurations), are accentuated with black or red lines added in ink to the print.

Cutting('67-'68)- cinematic technique of "cutting," or editing, and its importance in the construction of filmic reality. A house is projected onto a paper screen and the window is cut with scissors. Next, Marshall McLuhan's sentence: "The content of the writing is the speech" is cut out of the screen. Then, the naked body, serves as a living screen, the sign of which is shaved by the artist. The fellatio at the end shows the most direct form of communication which eschews words and images.

Live performance. 2 July 1970. Frankfurt. VALIE EXPORT had a garter tattooed on her thigh. Kristine Stiles writes- It is, as EXPORT has written, a permanent sign for "repressed sexuality...that demands conditioned behaviour," and a constant reminder to the artist to "keep alive the problem of self-determination and/or other-determination of femininity."
