Stavanger Art Museum

With an exhibition of works from the SAMMLUNG VERBUND Collection, Stavanger Art Museum is presenting one of the most important phenomena in the art history of the 1970s—the emancipation of women artists, who began to create their own new and collective self-determined image of women in an art world dominated by men. In line with the slogan “the private is political,” these artists reflected on stereotypical social expectations in their works.
The exhibition is divided into five sections: breaking out of one-dimensional role ascriptions as mother, housewife and wife, role-plays, locked up – breaking out, the beautiful body, and female sexuality. Many of the artists represented here moved away from the male-dominated genre of painting and turned to historically less predetermined media like photography, video, film, and performance. The collection director Gabriele Schor coined the concept of FEMINIST AVANTGARDE for this movement—as a way of underscoring its significance.

COMING SOON: Biography Annegret Soltau: Ich war total suchend translated in English.

Annegret Soltau spent her childhood in a farmhouse, since burnt down, in the Elbe Marshes. Born as the second world war came to a close, she lived in poverty with her grandmother. She received no care and love from her mother, who was ashamed of having given birth to a child out of wedlock. The village school teacher was the only person to realise how intelligent and artistically talented Annegret was. He did all he could to ensure that she could go on to secondary school in the face of opposition from her family. Although Annegret Soltau was shy, lonely and living in a social environment that did not understand her, she succeeded in finishing school, followed by a year in England. Then she had the choice of three art academies.
Baldur Greiner, a sculptor, tells his wife’s life story with all the obstacles and difficulties as well as crucial, even horrible, experiences she had to overcome, which would also shape her art. Readers will understand how Annegret Soltau has controlled, harnessed and sewn her emotions into her work. The threads and lines become traces of a life that do not veil the selbst but rather expose it as a totality.
