Valie Export. Aus der Mappe der Hundigkeit, 1968
Valie Export. Aus der Mappe der Hundigkeit, 1968

The artist’s positions date back to the 1960s, when Valie Export - a name that she invented as part of making her life her ‘own creation’ - joined in the rebellious opposition to established paradigms expressed by the Viennese Actionists, pouring herself into works committed to changing society and the role traditionally imposed upon women. With her steady demands for independence in every aspect of society and culture, Valie Export can be considered a pioneer in the politics of gender who, with her revolutionary and provocative outlook, has paved the way for contemporary female artists in the rough waters of artistic creation.
