"The avant-garde was female! – at least in pre- and post-revolutionary Russia. There, for the first time in the history of art, a large number of women artists confidently took their place in the public limelight alongside their male colleagues, with whom they shared equal rights and equal status. Their aim was not simply to draw attention to themselves; on the contrary, they now played a decisive role in defining the artistic and societal goals of their time. In an exhibition entitled Sisters of the Revolution – Women Artists of the Russian Avant-Garde, the Wilhelm-Hack-Museum – in close cooperation with the State Tretyakov Gallery in Moscow – is now presenting more than one hundred artworks, stage decorations and handcrafted objects by Russian women avant-gardists dating from the period 1907–1934..."
