What feminism can do? This is not a rehearsal
Prof. Dr. Anna-Kaisa Rastenberger

Exhibition Studies and Spatiality / Praxis-studies, University of the Arts Helsinki, Academy of Fine Arts

We have talked about representations, the female gaze, artists, nuns and care workers. We have talked about women’s laughter and feminist killjoys, quotas and inequality, Beyoncé and capitalism. We have talked about all these things when we have talked about feminism and photography. But what about photography exhibitions? How can a photo-based exhibition function as a feminist medium? What to focus on when viewing photographic exhibitions as places and situations where feminisms take place?

In her talk Rastenberger discusses works by photographer Marge Monko and the way they have become public. She approaches “exhibition” as an active act of displaying associated with both an opportunity to act and a responsibility for action, and as the spectators’ active and committed relationship to photographs. She talks about the acts of putting on “display” – this term entered the vocabulary of art exhibitions and has been associated with new forms of the economy and in particular ideas about (re)presentations that occur on surfaces. The word contains a loaded relationship between surface and background, and gives precedence to the former over the latter, which is more complex, challenging, and difficult to comprehend, and which is not shown, or displayed, but instead concealed.

Der Vortrag von Prof. Dr. Anna-Kaisa Rastenberger und das anschließende Werkgespräch mit Marge Monko finden in englischer Sprache statt.

Signierte Exemplare des Plakates I Don´t Eat Flowers (limitierte Auflage) können an dem Abend für 30 € erworben werden.

Der zweite Vortrag von Janeke Meyer Utne zu Nancy Spero findet am 8. August 2019 statt.
