DESCRIPTION


An avant-garde artist in the fields of performance art, video, photography, and experimental cinema, VALIE EXPORT started working in the 1960s with the Vienna Aktionists, focusing on the status of women in traditional post-war Austrian society. Many of her early performances and pieces are seen as iconic works that are still influential today. This exhibition – comprising photographed and filmed documentation of her activities as well as concept papers, photographs, and drawings – brings a cross-section of her works to Israel for the first time. The exhibition is presented in collaboration with the Jerusalem Cinematheque, which will be screening a retrospective of her films in the Ticho House garden during the Jerusalem Film Festival.
