THE BEGINNING. Art in Austria, 1945-1980. #9 Feminist Avant-Garde
Early Austrian Feminist art production is associated with artists like VALIE EXPORT, and Kiki Kogelnik who – with their body related and performative art – built a counterpart to the strongly male dominated Viennese actionism.
Putting a focus on patriarchal society and its constraints the so called austrian feminist avant-garde was in search for new visual and gestural language and introduced therefor new ways of expression, themes as well as aesthetics into contemporary, mail dominated art.
In our CastYourArt video portrait, ALBERTINAmodern chief curator Angela Stief provides insights into the works and characteristic features of the feminist avant garde and its members such as Birgit Jürgenssen, Renate Bertlmann, Linda Christanell, Friederike Pezold, Karin Mack, Margot Pilz, Auguste Kronheim, Valentina Pakosta, and others.https://www.albertina.at
