Let’s spit on hegel

Video tape, 10’, HD, 16:9, Geneva, 2015

This feminist investigation deals
with separatism in art. In maintaining that women should keep away
from moments of masculine celebration, specifically in the art world, the protagonists renew
Carla Lonzi’s 1970s feminist discourse, giving it more contemporary impulsion.
Since the artworks that are viewed represent naked women, made
by men, the feminist indictment is visually expressed: the difference between man and woman must
be affirmed, and feminist liberation begins by self-affirmation as women. Indeed, the occupation of public space by sculptures of naked women made by men is an affront to these adolescent women on the cusp of exploring the city, of their curiosity about the public domain, of their “coming out” as feminists.
