Feminist Avantgarde of the 1970s

The MUMOK highlights the iconic and important era of the 1970s through a showcase of pieces from the Sammlung Verbund Collection, bringing to light the emancipation of women artists, who for the first time in the history of art began to create their own new and collective self-determined image. These women reflected on stereotypical social expectations in their works, and their views and art are highly relevant even today. The exhibition is divided into four sections: breaking out of one-dimensional role ascriptions as mother, housewife and wife, role-plays, the normativity of beauty, and female sexuality, and is featuring  300 works by 48 artists from Europe and North and South America. Definitely a must see summer exhibition!

Demystifying Femininity
Image

Aiming to question and reflect the contemporary connotation of the concept femininity, sexuality and gender roles, the exhibition ‘Demystifying Femininity’ presents a three week long project including a group art show, discussions, artist talks, stand-up comedy and workshops. The featured artists were chosen through an open call asking for diverse approaches on the concept femininity. Artists were invited to explore, demystify, question and redefine the concept, whether it was through a social, personal, political or corporeal approach.

The Vienna Biennale is consistently on our must visit list, and this year is no different. Combining art, design, and architecture for a summer long festival celebrating the creative prowess of the city, the Biennale is all about generating new creative ideas and supporting cooperative projects. The 2017 edition comes under the overreaching title Robots. Work. Our Future, so expect some futuristic AI and robotics aspects throughout. There is simply so much to see, do, and experience during the four months that we suggest you study the programme and make your picks sooner rather than later!

Buy From Jews! Story of a Viennese store culture
Image

Documenting the rise of the department stores in Vienna in the nineteenth century, the new exhibition at the Jewish Museum offers an insight into the lives of the families who stood behind the movement. Names such as Gerngross, Zwieback, Jacob Rothberger, Braun & Co, Goldman & Salatsch, Jungmann & Neffe, and Knize shaped the shopping culture back in the day and the exhibit presents this aspect as well as the architecture and setting, the designers, the customers, and the sales personnel, tailors, and window dressers. Topping it off, the museum invited the young Viennese artist Kathi Hofer to take up motifs of the exhibition and, in the form of an artistic intervention, enable a different view for the visitors.

Until 19 Nov 2017
