A conference on gender and art at the Women’s Museum, Aarhus, 9/3 to mark the 100th anniversary of Female Artist Society.
A fierce day with the theme “To be seen as an artist, not as a female artist”. Excellent presentationS by Kasper Monrad (SMK), Ellen Tange (KØS), Ulla Angkjær Jørgensen (Trondheim Uni), Hans Dam Christensen (Copenhagen Uni). Great responsiveness- as well as frustration – over the facts and trends at the contemporary art scene (read: the established art institutions, museums etc) in the – predominantly female – audience.
And with good time for lunch, coffee and dinner where the talk corrugated lively between presenters and participants. Thus, it is an established fact that gender equality in the art world is still completely skewed – and definitely not in favor of women!
Organized by Women Artists Society, KKS in collaboration with the Women’s Museum.
