From childcare and housekeeping to feminism – a new exhibition reflects on women’s different responsibilities.
“Rabenmütter. Zwischen Kraft und Krise: Mütterbilder von 1900 bis heute” features paintings from Hans Makart, Maria Lassnig, Heinrich Campendonk and several other famous painters as well as photographs by up and coming contemporary artists. Curated by Sabine Fellner, Elisabeth Nowak-Thaller and Stella Rollig, the exhibit – which is now on display in Linz – debates the roles of women in society throughout the decades. It demonstrates how family constellations have been displayed in art between 1900 and today.
Furthermore on display at the Lentos Kunstmuseum Linz: fifty photographs by a local artist. Bernhard Fuchs grew up in Upper Austria’s Mühlviertel region, not far from the provincial capital. Between 2010 and 2014, the renowned artist – who is now based in Dusseldorf – took photos on the Mühlviertel countryside. His images show idyllic hills and woodlands but also feature fascinating details and specific differences as they were taken on different times of the day and seasons.
