Valie Export: Retrospective
C/O Berlin – Jan 27 to May 22, 2024 Berlin (Germany)
The exhibition presents the multifaceted oeuvre of one of the most important media and performance artists of the twentieth century. VALIE EXPORT (b. 1940, Austria) is internationally recognized as a trailblazing artist who challenges social norms and role models with her media-reflective practice and feminist criticism.
This exhibition presents her eclectic artistic development, ranging from her early, provocative “expanded cinema” actions to her symbolic performances and urban interventions. EXPORT’s in-depth examination of media such as video, drawing, and installation is apparent in the different phases of her career, especially in her experimental approach to photography, which is a special focus of this exhibition. Her radical performances and critical analysis of mass media highlight, among other things, the role of women and their social marginalization in a patriarchal society.
