This exhibition is really two in one: 'The Feminist Vanguard of the '70s'. Works from the Verbund Collection, Vienna' and 'Choreographies of the genre'.
The '70s marked a decisive turning point in the feminist movement, and that agitation and the breakthrough art that helped redefine gender roles remain a source of inspiration for modern-day artists. The first exhibition presents 200 works by artists from Europe, North and South America and Asia that help to rewrite the history of art; featured Spanish and Catalan artists include Pilar Aymerich, Mari Chordà, Angels Ribé, Eugènia Balcells and Esther Ferrer, among others.
The second exhibition puts the spotlight on current stories, told via some 15 works; feminism has expanded massively over the past 50 years, with the concept of gender as the focus.
