WOMAN. The Feminist Avant-Garde from the 1970s. Works from the SAMMLUNG VERBUND, Vienna
Palais des Beaux-Arts, Brussels, Belgium from June 17 till August 31

The group exhibition unites 450 works by 29 artists for the first time on 1.600 m2 at BOZAR in Brussels. In this decade the female artists have collectively created a new ‚image of woman’ in their photographs, drawings, videos, films and objects. They studied their own body and grasped the prospect of self-determined feminine identities in a provocative, radical, poetic and ironic manner.

Participating artists:
Helena Almeida, Eleanor Antin, Renate Bertlmann, Teresa Burga, Lili Dujourie, Mary Beth Edelson, VALIE EXPORT, Esther Ferrer, Alexis Hunter, Sanja Iveković, Birgit Jürgenssen, Ketty La Rocca, Leslie Labowitz, Suzanne Lacy, Suzy Lake, Ana Mendieta, Rita Myers, Gina Pane, Ewa Partum, Ulrike Rosenbach, Martha Rosler, Annegret Soltau, Carolee Schneemann, Cindy Sherman, Penny Slinger, Hannah Wilke, Martha Wilson, Francesca Woodman, Nil Yalter.
