This group exhibition includes works by artists already active in the 1960s and 70s in the women's movement together with works by artists born in the 1970s and 80s. Thematically they negotiate the relationship of the body to space and address the use of specific forms of the female body in mass culture. What the artists have in common is that they have all organised networks and amongst other things developed action-based and performative practises and further, that they have worked across disciplines and draw on different educational backgrounds in order to experiment with hybrid forms of authorship. The question of access to public space stands alongside proposals for intimate experiential spaces, provocative displays of the feminine next to enigmatic portraits. The artists each design their own claiming of space and visual strategies.
