Ein künstlerisch frauenbewegtes und/oder feministisches „Nein“ ist zunächst innerhalb der sich allgemein formierenden politischen Frauenbewegungen „schön“ geworden. Suffrage-Künstlerinnen brachten ihre Anliegen mittels Flugblättern, Postern oder Transparenten auf die Straße.

The “No” of the artistic women’s movements and/or feminism first became “beautiful”
within political women’s movements.

Suffragette-artists pushed their concerns
into the streets with flyers, posters or banners. However, apart from the
suffrage-no in its historical localization, the “No” has not been a part of the
history-writing of the women’s movements to this day.

For the time being, we will nevertheless approach the more fundamental issues with
the historian, Natascha Vittorelli: How is the notion of the women’s movement
written at all? How can it be organized methodologically? Where do its theoretical
and practical borders lie? Where does it begin and where does it end? On
September 4th 2010, Vittorelli will approach all of these questions, with which
she has been extensively engaged. Her thoughts on the subject will be placed
into an artistic context with a final discussion with Sabine Plakolm-Forsthuber
(art historian) and Rudolfine Lackner (VBKÖ) in order to thematize the
tremendous omissions of the non-naming of the “First feminist art movements.“

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 100 Poster Club, Amanda Amaan/Rudolfine
Lackner, Elke Auer/Esther Straganz, Linda Bilda, Veronika Dirnhofer, Lina
Dokuzovic, Drogerie, Nino Jaeger and Sands Murray-Wassink 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.
