Text “The VBKÖ’s Archive as a Site of Political Confrontation, or How Can You Sing Out of Tune?” in All-women art spaces in Europe in the long 1970s

All-women art spaces in Europe in the long 1970s
Edited by Agata Jakubowska and Katy Deepwell

The texts gathered in this volume embrace women artists-only exhibitions, festivals, collective art projects, groups and associations, organised in the long 1970s in Europe (1968-1984). These all-women art initiatives are closely related to developments within the political and politicized women’s movement in Europe and America but what emerges is the varied and plural manner of their engagements with feminism(s) alongside their creation of ‘heterotopias’ in relation to specific sites/ politics/ collaborative art practices.

With texts by Katia Almerini, Susanne Altmann, Katy Deepwell, Fabienne Dumont, Nina Hoechtl and Julia Wieger, Agata Jakubowska, Monika Kaiser, Elke Krasny, Annika Öhrner, Márcia Oliveira, Kathleen Wentrack.
