"Feminist Avant–Garde of the 1970s" is an exhibition of 150 works by 48 female artists, drawn from the Verbund Collection in Vienna.
The exhibition highlights some of the groundbreaking practices that helped to shape the feminist art movement, and includes everything from photographs and performance pieces, to collages, films and videos. The 1970s were a time of emancipation, with gender equality and civil rights protests. And the poetic, ironic and often provocative pieces by female artists were used as a means of engagement – to help question feminine identities, gender roles and sexual politics.
Artists include Cindy Sherman, Francesca Woodman, Martha Rosler, Katalin Ladik, Nil Yalter, Birgit Jurgenssen and Sanja Ivekovic.
