16 October 2010 to 30 January 2011 – Lower Belvedere

The Belvedere and the Lentos Kunstmuseum Linz are compiling a comprehensive exhibition on one of Austria’s internationally most renowned media artists. In the course her work of more than four decades, VALIE EXPORT has realized a sizable and consistent oeuvre by employing such modes of expression as performance, photography, film, and media installation. EXPORT was both celebrated and vehemently criticized for her feminist orientation and her tireless fight for an unbiased and gender-neutral assessment of themes addressed by the media. The show focuses on EXPORT’s conceptual approach, which always starts out from the human body and revolves around the communicative and cultural codifications related to it.
The show, which will be presented simultaneously in both museums, will offer a comprehensive insight into the artist’s œuvre as a whole.
