On the occasion of the exhibition by Hannah-Höch-Prize recipient Monika Baer and upon the artist’s initiative, the first German-language edition of the essay “Modernity and the Spaces of Femininity” (1988) by Griselda Pollock, a pioneer of feminist art history and theory is published as part of the series “n.b.k. Diskurs.” In her examination of the artistic practice of women Impressionist painters, Pollock offers a brilliant analysis of class and gender relations since the end of the 19th century whose effects can be felt to this day. Moderne und die Räume der Weiblichkeit is published by Verlag der Buchhandlung Walther König in Cologne, in a revised and extensively commented version with a foreword by Klaus Lederer and Marius Babias and an introduction by Griselda Pollock.
