May 25 - Aug 17, 2019
Curated by Alice Maude-Roxby and Stefanie Seibold, Resist: be modern (again) explores the practices of women artists, designers and writers of the 1920s and 30s through the work of contemporary artists. These early pioneering women were important groundbreakers for their time, many of their ideas are reverberating until today. Their battles against social conventions and aesthetic dogmas paved the way for today’s understanding of an expanded field of art, as well as for contemporary personal freedoms. Using the lens of contemporary art, theory and design, the exhibition highlights the importance and influence of these long-lost early avant-garde practices into the present.
