GUERILLA GIRLS: Can the world still be saved? / We Are Moon Girls

Within the scope of the third exhibition, Stone Telling (Duration October 3 to November 30, 2019), we offered various workshop formats for two different age groups. The main focus of the workshops was the creation of the future and the formulation of social utopias:

1. Can the world still be saved?

Stories and songs for a planet in a state of emergency

What characterizes the heroes* of today? Which superpowers are needed to "fix" our future? Moreover, what role can art play in this? There are currently many strong female voices in science-fiction literature, inventing completely new worlds and new languages, to sensitize us to present-day problems and to initiate action. From the author Ursula K. Le Guin, we looked at how speculative storytelling works, how she invents a character for us and together, we developed texts and songs against the crisis.


1. an item that symbolizes a superpower to you.
2. Perhaps you already have a (free) music app on your smartphone that you can use to compose songs (a beat, a melody)? Then gladly bring it!


Nicole Sabella is a visual artist, cultural scientist and an art and cultural mediator. Her often-collaborative artistic research practice develops at the socio-political interfaces of body, language, voice and space and temporarily bundles them into constellations that she calls Choreo:spheres. She produces performative sound installations, including PRO: TEST SONG ORIGINATOR (Academy of Fine Arts Vienna, 2016) or BEURABIAN T: ONMUSEUM (Kunstraum Sigismundkapelle, Regensburg DE), 2016).


2. We Are Moon Girls

By means of girls’ stories from science-fiction comics and children and youth’s literature, we looked at heroes and their environment, such as the Moon Girl Lunella Lafayette. How do these heroes shape their future, what distinguishes them from everyone else and how do they take care of others? What are our superpowers and who are the heroes in our everyday life? Encircled by the exhibition Stone Telling, which concerned itself with feminist, speculative futures, we first examined what superheroes can do and how they are portrayed. Then, we became heroes ourselves at a photo station.

Lisa Ribar, born in 1990, studied art history and history at the University of Vienna. Her focus was on economic and social history of the 20th and 21st centuries, as well as socio-political issues in architecture and performance art. She works as a freelance art and cultural mediator.



Girls Workshops in Kunstraum Niederoesterreich

Already in the 1980’s, the artist group Guerilla Girls asked the question "Do women have to be naked to get into 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 2019 was being held in Vienna in cooperation with 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!
