Comprising over 150 major works from the Verbund Collection in Vienna, the exhibition draws together the work of 48 female artists.

Photographs, collage, performance and video by Cindy Sherman, Francesca Woodman, Martha Rosler and others are used to explore the groundbreaking practices that shaped the feminist art movement. The works were produced throughout the 1970s, and confront issues such as emancipation, gender equality and civil rights.

During this period artists sought to address both the political and personal side of sexism and – often using their own bodies as central motifs – found art gave them the power to assert positive new visions of female identities.
