  VALIE EXPORT Dichotomy, 1982

Images of women?

collected #8

21 FEBRUARY - 31 March 2019
Bank Austria Kunstforum | Vienna, Austria

For the 8th edition of the Collected exhibition, Bank Austria Kunstforum Wien presents a selection of works by leading Austrian women artists from the UniCredit Bank Austria art collection including: Renate Bertlmann, VALIE EXPORT, Martha Jungwirth, Birgit Jürgenssen, Kiki Kogelnik, Friederike Pezold, Margot Pilz, Eva Schlegel, Nina Rike Springer, Gabi Trinkaus as well as an intervention by Agnes Prammer.

Women artists who portray other women, and thus creating images remote from the regime of a male-dominated perspective, are often pushed to one side of the conversation, and by proxy the radars of the media, surrounding this very current conversation. Through photography, collage, painting and drawing these selected artists are analysing the objectification of the female body which regularly undermines the concept of “beauty”. Additionally, the socially determined, female roles which are being assigned and thus casting an individual light onto “woman” and forms of femaleness.

Curated by Veronika Rudorfer.
