Design Museum: Lost Women Art

14.02.2022

(Past event)

100 years of European Art History – RELOADED and FULL-ON FEMALE

22 February and the 1st March

 

“Women have always written art history and worked on eye-level with their male contemporaries. Together they claimed new paths and caused sensations – but despite this neither their names nor their works are known today. Up to this day women play only minor roles in the canon of art and if they are remembered at all, it is as “exceptions”.

The two-part documentary, Lost Women Art (Germany, 2021), by Susanne Radelhof explores the mechanisms of this systematic omission of highly-talented artists and reveals the blank spaces of the art history, which was so clearly shaped by men. Lost Women Art is an homage to great female art and visionary female artists – such as impressionist Berthe Morisot, front woman of the Russian avant-garde Natalja Gontscharowa, or pioneer of abstraction Hilma af Klint.
