Alumni Event | Vienna’s Female Secession: Feminism, Art and Design

Vienna’s Female Secession: Feminism, Art and Design

This is a past event, but you can still view the recording.

Join us for a lively and informative conversation between IES Vienna alumnae, Dr. Megan Brandow-Faller and Wanda Bubriski about The Female Secession period in Vienna (1897-1939) when female artists disrupted long-established boundaries by working to dislodge fixed oppositions between “art” and “craft,” “decorative” and “profound,” and “masculine” and “feminine” in art. You’ll hear about the ways female artists and craftswomen during that period reinterpreted and extended the Gustav Klimt Group’s ideas, and the connection to the themes that propelled the explosion of feminist art in 1970s America.
