WOMAN. Internationellt feministiskt avantgarde från 1970-talet från VERBUND COLLECTION, Vienna

The VERBUND COLLECTION, Vienna, was hosted at the Mjellby Art Museum, Halmstad, Sweden, from 10 May to 7 September 2014

The exhibition starts with the deconstruction of the “image of the woman” and how artists in the 1970s even tried to redefine this image. As painting was strongly associated with men, the new media were particularly suited to female artists, who sought a more direct and more spontaneous means of expression, free from the heritage of “male artistic genius”.
