So I've been looking into loads of different artists and one of the interesting women artists I have been looking at I thought I'd write a little bit about quickly as this particular performance piece she did waaaay back in the 70's made me laugh and also reminded me of Valerie Solanas and her s.c.u.m manifesto (which I bought from the freedom bookshop in white chapel which is amazing) ...VAILE EXPORT is an Austrian artist whose work covers many media, video, installation, animation, photography and performance. She is renowned for her taboo breaking feminist performances. Most interestingly she did a performance piece she called Action Pants: Genital Panic, whereby she entered porn cinemas in crotch less pants wielding a machine gun, she then challenged the male audiences to engage with a real woman, not the fantasy women on screen.
VALIE EXPORTSociety For Cutting Up Men...? A bit Extreme?!!!!
