poster for "Cutting Realities: Gender Strategies in Art" Exhibition

This event has ended.

"Cutting Realities" is an exhibition that links the historically important decade of the 1960s with contemporary approaches to issues of gender, demonstrating how artists articulate their concerns on a visual and performative level by cutting into dominant, conservative, and restrictive reality but also by cutting out their own artistic realities that reflect on given societal processes. The show presents works drawn exclusively from Kontakt, the art collection of Erste Bank Group, Vienna, which focuses on art from Central and Eastern Europe. The artworks in the exhibition span a timeframe of almost 50 years, demonstrating not only the beginnings of feminism and gender activism but also the current status of gendered lifestyles. On the fortieth anniversary of 1968, the show provides an insightful look at how attitudes toward physicality and sexuality have developed.
