« Tattoo, the face of freedom » in Teutloff Museum
The tattoo, originally “the tatau” ornaments the skin and thus abstracts everyday life. The Tattoo is a masquerade of the skin and marks the body itself as the place of fantasy. Because through the painted body - through the tattoo - the body itself becomes exotic and therefore there is no normal everyday life anymore. Now there is only an exotic and erotic everyday life possible.
To cover the body with signs is like opening a door. A door to paradise, to another place, to an utopian place. The body itself becomes this heterotopos. The body itself becomes this utopian place. The door of the tattoo leads to the theater of illusions - just think of Genet -, to the theater of desires like in a dream. The door of the tattoo leads to the room of childhood, to the chambers of the unconscious.
To tattoo o...

Une chambre à soi - Galerie Christophe Gaillard
"Monsieur, une femme qui compose est semblable à un chien qui marche sur ses pattes de derrière. Ce qu'il fait n'est pas bien fait, mais vous êtes surpris de le voir faire."

Time and Countertime - VALIE EXPORT
A major solo exhibition dedicated to VALIE EXPORT opens Museion's 2011 exhibition programme, continuing in the direction initiated in 2010, with the focus on female artists and the language of sculpture in a broader sense.
The art of VALIE EXPORT (Linz, 1940) is devoted to radical social and political critique. Over more than four decades her wide-ranging career has spanned performances, actions, photography, film, expanded cinema, sculptures, texts and installations. Her works address markedly topical themes such as violence, wounds, the female image and how individuals are influenced by physical and social contexts. Early works with a powerful feminist stance, such as Tap and Touch Cinema and Action Pants: Genital Panic are now genuine icons of art history. Throughout her varied career she has always tackled...
DONNA: FEMINIST AVANT-GARDE OF THE 1970sSince its inception in 2004 the Sammlung Verbund focuses on the feminist art movement of the 1970s as one of the main areas of collecting. In keeping with its maxim, "Depth before Breadth", the fruits of this particular focus are now for the first time presented in Italy. The Galleria nazionale d'arte moderna in Rome shows an exhibition entitled DONNA: FEMINIST AVANT-GARDE OF THE 1970s from Sammlung Verbund, Vienna.
The director of the collection, Gabriele Schor, has taken the initiative and deliberately designated the feminist art movement of the 1970s as Feminist Avant-Garde, in order to emphasise its trailblazing role, as it is, like no other art movement in the late 20th and early 21st centuries, a decisive force in shaping contemporary art production. The Feminist Avant-Garde is still an open field and ...

Darkside - Photographic Desire and Sexuality PhotographedPhotography is present everywhere. It plays a formative role in all societies and in private, public, intimate, commercial, and "free" areas of our lives. It is also present in the closed off areas, there where it is "dark", where we withdraw from society, or where acts are excluded from society. For eroticism, sexuality, desire, and identity, photography is a central visual tool: as document, stimulation, instrument of power, and as artistic form of expression.
The exhibition and book project Darkside will discuss photography as an instrument of representation and as an important visual catalyst of sexuality. Photography shows and stylizes lust and passion, fantasy and desire, power and violence, voyeurism and self-presentation in sexuality. Fantasy and desire form a thrilling pact with photograph...
Female Trouble The camera as mirror and stage of female projectionSince the invention of photography more than 170 years ago it has been largely women who have used this technical medium to project themselves through role playing and masquerading. As well as the experimental urge to constantly recreate ones ego, the camera has also served as a means of calling into question clichés of female representation. Playing with the image of the eternally feminine was and remains a discourse with gender identity, its social and political definitions and reaching beyond them.
The exhibition focuses on contemporary women artists such as Cindy Sherman, Sarah Lucas, Monica Bonvicini and Pipilotti Rist, who with the aid of photography and video art investigate the female image. The artists explore the question of what image patterns the media age employs for portraying femininity and how t...
Out of BodyOpen Eye Gallery is proud to present Out of Body, an exhibition of photographs and moving image works that explore, manipulate and reflect upon the human body. The exhibition looks at the relationship between biological and photographic time, contrasting the continuous life cycle with the still photographic instant. Rejecting the rules of traditional portraiture, Out of Body does not attempt to capture the human body in a stable visual form. Instead it expresses the resistance of our bodies to being coded or pinned down as images, and the limitations of the technologies through which we attempt to do this.
During a trip to Tasmania, Yannick Demerle (France) made long-exposure photographs of himself in gloomy, TV-lit motel rooms. He now presents these images in negative, giving them a lingering, spectral feeling. Namik...
