Beryl Korot is the Raindance member most consistently associated with the leadership of Radical Software. She first met Schneider whilst studying English Literature at the University of Wisconsin, and they later collaborated together to produce »Video Art: An Anthology« (1976), a seminal publication documenting early video art history. Also a Guggenheim fellow, Korot has been recognised for her multichannel works »Dachau 1974« (1974) and »Text and Commentary« (1977), which are in the Kramlich and Thoma Art Collections and the MoMA NYC collection respectively. Her works, which brought video technology into conversation with the ancient hand loom, have been shown in venues including The Kitchen (1975) Documenta 6 (1977), the Whitney Museum (1980 / 2002), Tate Modern (2014) and SFMOMA (2016). She later collaborated with composer and husband Steve Reich to make »The Cave« (1993) and »Three Tales« (2002), the former of which was shown in the ZKM »Medium Religion« exhibition in 2008.
