Abstract (English)

"The group exhibition WOMAN : The Feminist Avant-Garde of the 1970s: Works from the SAMMLUNG VERBUND, Vienna, unites 450 works by 29 female artists. The history of art showed the 'image of woman' as the product of male projections. In the 1970's, for the first time, female artists themselves created 'the image of woman'. They studied their own bodies and grasped the prospect of determined feminine identities in a provocative, radical, poetic and ironic manner. Curator Gabriele Schor refers to this movement as the 'Feminist Avant-Garde' emphasizing the pioneering and collective role that these artists have played for the last four decades." p. [4] of cover.
