Class „Feminist Art and Exhibitions, History and Challenges“

Node Center for Curatorial Studies

From April 10th-May 2nd, I will be teaching a class on Feminist Art and Exhibitions for the Node Center for Curatorial Studies, Berlin.
This course, which is taught online, will look at how feminist thinking has influenced the arts since the 1960s, both in Western as well as selected non-Western contexts. It will present the foundational feminist theories that furthered the radicalization of female artists and trace their manifestation in the visual arts. Due to its strong political content and often taboo-breaking visuality, feminist art continues to present its own set of challenges to curators and museum professionals. The course will introduce students to the most important exhibitions of feminist art and discuss their strategies, premises, and criticism. In addition, the course will present curatorial practices and exhibition formats that follow feminist premises.

If you missed this class, stay tuned for the next iteration in fall 2019.
