In conjunction with the exhibition WOMAN. FEMINIST AVANT-GARDE OF THE 1970s from the SAMMLUNG VERBUND Collection, mumok and the SAMMLUNG VERBUND are hosting a conference. Fifteen of the artists with works in the exhibition will be present. In the 1970s, these artists, from the USA, Canada, and Europe, were among the most provocative voices in contemporary art, and their socially critical works still resonate today.

This symposium is a unique opportunity to hear the thoughts of influential women artists from nine nations on the situation of women in the 1070s, the feminist movement, and their own personal approaches and experiences.
