The group exhibition WOMAN. The Feminist Avant-Garde from the 1970s. Works from the SAMMLUNG VERBUND, Vienna brings together 450 works by 29 female artists. Art history shows that the “image of woman” is actually the product of male projections. In the 1970s female artists, for the first time in art history, created the “image of woman” themselves. They studied their own bodies and created the prospect of determined feminine identities in a provocative, radical, poetic, and ironic manner. The curator Gabriele Schor calls this art movement the “Feminist Avant-Garde” to emphasise “the pioneering and collective role that these artists played for the last four decades” and believes that “many Feminist Avant-Garde artists - and their works - have yet to be discovered.”

Artists: Helena Almeida (PT), Eleanor Antin (US), Renate Bertlmann (AT), Teresa Burga (PE), Valie Export (AT) , Esther Ferrer (ES), Alexis Hunter (NZ), Sanja Ivekovi? (HR), Birgit Jürgenssen (AT), Ketty La Rocca (IT), Leslie Labowitz (US), Suzanne Lacy (US), Suzy Lake (CA), Ana Mendieta (CU), Gina Pane (FR), Ulrike Rosenbach (DE), Martha Rosler (US), Carolee Schneemann (US), Cindy Sherman (US), Annegret Soltau (DE), Hannah Wilke (US), Martha Wilson (US), Francesca Woodman (US), Nil Yalter (FR), Lili Dujourie (BE), Mary Beth Edelson (US), Rita Myers (US), Penny Slinger (US), Ewa Patum (AT).


L’exposition WOMAN. The Feminist Avant-Garde from the 1970s. Works from the SAMMLUNG VERBUND, Vienna rassemble 450 œuvres de 29 artistes féminines. L’histoire de l’art montre que l’image de la femme est le produit de projections masculines. Dans les années 1970, les femmes artistes ont donné pour la première fois naissance à la représentation de la femme. Elles ont étudié leurs propres corps et ont élaboré la conception d’identités féminines de manière provocante, radicale, poétique et ironique. La commissaire Gabriele Schor qualifie ce mouvement artistique d’Avant-garde féministe pour mettre en évidence « le rôle pionnier et collectif que ces artistes ont joué ces 40 dernières années » et souligne que « de nombreuses artistes de ce courant ainsi que leurs œuvres sont encore à découvrir ».


De groepstentoonstelling WOMAN. The Feminist Avant-Garde from the 1970s. Works from the SAMMLUNG VERBUND, Vienna omvat 450 werken van 29 vrouwelijke artiesten. Doorheen de kunstgeschiedenis is het ‘beeld van de vrouw’ gevormd naar mannelijke projecties. Pas in de jaren zeventig konden vrouwelijke artiesten voor het eerst in de kunstgeschiedenis hun eigen beeld vormen. Ze bestudeerden hun lichamen en bepaalden de vrouwelijke identiteit op een provocerende, radicale, poëtische en ironische manier. Curator Gabriele Schor noemt deze beweging de ‘feministische avant-garde’ en benadrukt “de collectieve en pioniersrol die deze artiesten speelden de voorbije vier decennia”. Ze gelooft dat “heel wat feministische avant-gardeartiesten - en hun werk - nog ontdekt kunnen worden”.
