VALIE EXPORT: Jerusalem PremiereJune 21, 2009-October 9, 2009
Location: Ticho House
Artist: VALIE EXPORT
Curator: Timna Seligman
Media: Photography, film, concept papers, and drawings
An avant-garde artist in the fields of performance art, video, photography, and experimental cinema, VALIE EXPORT started working in the 1960s with the Vienna Aktionists, focusing on the status of women in traditional post-war Austrian society. Many of her early performances and pieces are seen as iconic works that are still influential today. This exhibition – comprising photographed and filmed documentation of her activities as well as concept papers, photographs, and drawings – brought a cross-section of her works to Israel for the first time.
