GUERILLA GIRLS: Who Cares?

 

As part of the first exhibition TechnoCare (Duration April 5 to May 15, 2019), we began with a workshop offer, which was carried out by the artist and social worker Janine Maria Schneider. In the workshop we discussed issues such as gender-specific segregation in the labor market through means of artistic works. With the aid of objects from the exhibition (such as the supervising robotic arm from the artist Addie Wagenknecht, who, in her installation Optimization of Parenthood, Part 2 (2012) swings a baby cradle) the following topics were worked out: Why is some work given a higher social rating than others? What is work, generally speaking, and why are activities that are carried out at home not considered in the general understanding of „work,“ and what does that mean for women? How do the artists of our exhibition deal with such topics?

 

Janine Maria Schneider (*1986) studied performative art at the Academy of Fine Arts Vienna from 2006 to 2013. After her diploma, she studied gender studies with Doris Ingrisch at the University of Music and Performing Arts Vienna and completed a course as a social worker. Since 2014 she works at Jugend am Werk. In her work as a caregiver, she supports people with disabilities in their living quarters.

 

GUERILLA GIRLS. Girls Workshops in Kunstraum Niederoesterreich

Already in the 1980’s, the artist group Guerilla Girls asked the question "Do women have to be naked in the museum?" Named after the feminist pioneers who have been surveying representation in the field of art for thirty years, Kunstraum Niederoesterreich's GUERILLA GIRLS Workshop series provides a selective offer for girls in order to discuss issues such as emancipation and self-determination with young women.

 

The girls-workshop series GUERILLA GIRLS is being held in Vienna with the kind support of the Hil Foundation (Mädchenbeirat) and the MA 57  – Frauen in Wien (Promotion and Co-ordination of Women’s Issues).

 

If you are interested in a workshop, girls’ clubs and girls' groups are welcome to contact us.
Participation is free!
