WHO_WANTS_TO_BE_A_FEMINIST?
More than thirty years after female artists such as Valie Export, Sanja Ivekovic, Carolee Schneemann and others developed their practises along feminist theories, ideas and concepts, a recent group show at the Austrian Cultural Forum, London, was entitled I am not a feminist. I am normal. The exhibition was conceived by the artists Marlene Haring and Anthony Auerbach as a parallel project to the Valie Export retrospective at the Camden Arts Centre and brought together a small selection of works by younger artists. Not least because of direct reference to Valie Export, the title of the exhibition, as well as the works which are collected under it, pose several questions which refer to an obviously ambivalent relationship that young female artists have with feminism.
