As yet, this artist is hardly known in Europe: the exhibition is one of the first ever held in the continent's German-speaking countries, and includes 20 images never shown in public before.
The pieces by Francesca Woodman were produced during an eight-year creative period from 1973 to 1980, and revolve around feminine subjectivity, conceptual photography, performance art, and discovery of the body.
Up till now, Woodman's fleeting life and her suicide at age 22 were central to how her work was perceived. Her effacing treatment of the female figure is often even interpreted as aesthetic proof that she was intimating suicide.
The Sammlung Verbund publication and exhibition aim to open up new horizons and show the photographs of this young artist from a perspective different to the current one, by concentrating primarily on the pictures and considering an alternative understanding of the content.
Vernissage: January 29, 2014, 7pm
