The Experiment 2A
A Room of One's Own – Tanya Bednar, Barbara Denk, Kristina Haider, Julia Hauser, Sanja Jelic, Katharina Lampert, Dunja Larise, Ursula Mayer, Patricia Reschenbach, Sofie Thorsen...
Initiated by Carola Dertnig
April 25 – May 13, 2001
The title A Room of One’s Own, taken from Virginia Woolf’s 1929 essay, refers to the historical roots of the women’s movement, in which all of the project participants have an interest.
The project A Room of One’s Own is intended to be a forum, in which current feminist discourse and praxis in the field of art can be topicalized, investigated and expanded. The group sees itself as an open structure. New participants with different perspectives of knowledge and experience can join at any time in the search for possible new directions related to this theme. The developement of strategies for merging and the intersections of common interests form the basis for further concrete collaborations. The contributions from the individual participants in A Room of One’s Own arrive at different times (asynchronously), may be processed, altered or ignored, or may stand alone as a separate contribution. The interplay of forces produces a constructive accumulation of contradictions.
