Feministická avantgarda 70. let/ Díla ze sbírky VERBUND COLLECTION

The VERBUND COLLECTION, Vienna, was hosted in the Dům umění města Brna / The Brno House of Arts, Brno, from 12 December 2018 to 24 February 2019.

With over 200 artworks from the VERBUND COLLECTION, Vienna, the Haus der Kunst in Brno shows how female artists in the 1970s began to subvert cultural constructs of the feminine and in doing so to use their body as a surface on which to project social codes and their criticism. The goal of the exhibition is to highlight the pioneering achievements of the “Feminist Avant-Garde”, a term coined by Gabriele Schor, the founding director of the VERBUND COLLECTION, and to re-write the canon of art history.
