Feminismus Symposium. f******* – Towards New Perspectives on Feminism
The Gender Politics of the Art Market


Discussion with Katharina Grosse (artist, Prof. Painting, Art Academy Düsseldorf), Marian López Fernández-Cao (president Association Women in the Visual Arts (MAV), Madrid) and Philomene Magers (Sprüth Magers gallery, Berlin/London), moderated by Julia Voss (journalist, Frankfurter Allgemeine Zeitung, Berlin)

In the media landscape the battle over a new, renewed, reborn, or doomed feminism seems more ferocious than ever. Frontlines run between aspiration and conscience, historicity and critique, prejudice and fear, complains and anger. The project f******* aims to analyse and discuss present and future battlefields on an interdisciplinary basis from different perspectives. The program consists of a three-day symposium, an exhibition, a concert and a newspaper campaign.

A project of Espace Surplus (Berlin) together with Goldsmiths University London in cooperation with Friedrich-Ebert-Stiftung and Neuer Berliner Kunstverein (n.b.k.)

The complete symposium is documented in a DVD-set and available at n.b.k.
