Revolutionäre Systeme Aktualisieren/Tatsysteme Konfrontieren II


Für die künstlerischen Frauenbewegungen Österreichs hatte der Bruch durch das NS-Regime fatale Folgen. Er führte bis weit in das 20. Jahrhundert hinein zum Vergessen nahezu aller davor existierenden pionierinnenhaften individuellen wie institutionellen, frauenbewegten oder feministischen Ansätze.



The break during the NS regime had fatal consequences for the women’s movement in the arts in Austria. It has carried on long into the 20th century with the forgetting of nearly all of the previously existent pioneering individuals and institutions coming from women’s movements or a feminist departure. As unreconciled as this time still is to the “one” history, despite the “obsessive” discourses on memory and remembering, the circumstances prove that there is hardly any production of knowledge about the manifold destinies of resistant women (visual) artists, for example. Does that then mean that there is still a break or a relavitism of the NS still in operation? Or which valency might that still have in the artistic everyday? Of interest are, among others, the overall continuities in action, which may account for current queer/feminist projects.

On the occasion of the centennial anniversary, a program for the year will be presented, which is composed of theoretical activities and a growing annual exhibition. Currently, works by Amanda Amaan/Rudolfine Lackner, Elke Auer/Esther Straganz, Linda Bilda, Veronika Dirnhofer, Lina Dokuzovic, Drogerie and Nino Jaeger are on display. All of the activities refer to the historical origin of the VBKÖ in the androcentric totalities of institutions and to current links of resistance predominantly imprinted by feminism.
