Zap! Pow! Snap! "WonderWomen" at the Katherine Nash Gallery

Zap! Pow! Snap! "WonderWomen" at the Katherine Nash Gallery | Herstory | Scoop.it

She has superhuman strength, her wounds heal instantly and her collection of weaponry includes the Lasso of Truth and a razor-sharp tiara to throw at her enemies. Who wouldn't like to be Wonder Woman, at least occasionally? Okay, the bustier, tight blue panties, and high-heeled boots might be a little uncomfortable, but her contradictory qualities - part super hero, part pinup girl - have mesmerized us since she came on the scene in 1941.

 

No wonder the enduring pop culture icon makes a great focal point for a group exhibition at the University of Minnesota's Katherine E. Nash Gallery entitled "WonderWomen." Co-sponsored by the University of Minnesota, the Minneapolis College of Art and Design and the Film Society of Minneapolis St. Paul, the show features work by women artists from around the world who are inspired or influenced by comics, animation or popular culture.

Photography meets feminism: Australian women photographers 1970s–80s

Photography meets feminism: Australian women photographers 1970s–80s | Herstory | Scoop.it

Robyn Stacey, Untitled, 1981

 

During this period of the late twentieth century, photography helped feminism and feminism helped photography. On the one hand, feminists used the highly informative and accessible medium of photography to raise awareness of critical social issues. On the other hand, photographic artists embraced feminist themes as a way of making their practice less esoteric and more engaged with contemporary life. This productive exchange between feminism and photography fostered a range of technical innovations and critical frameworks that radically transformed the direction of visual culture in Australia.

Marilyn Sanders: Wo-Men Working | Herstory | Scoop.it

"I photograph to share what it is to be alive, an impulse so profound, that I sometimes feel as if images I’m making with my camera could emerge from my inner core as if I were a human camera obscura.- Marilyn Sanders – 2014."

 

Photographer Marilyn Sanders has been interpreting the world for nearly four decades, and today Lenscratch features a series that examines the roles of working women at a time when the Women’s Movement was just taking hold. Marilyn’s focus as a photographer ranges from portraiture, still life, to societal examination.  She works with analog and digital processes and her work is produced in silver gelatin and digital prints.

Cherchez la femme : Feminist videos produced by French activist / militant collectives in the 1970s.

Cherchez la femme : Feminist videos produced by French activist / militant collectives in the 1970s. | Herstory | Scoop.it

There exists a rich history of radical, pioneering feminist video collectives in France that is largely unknown to Anglophone audiences and is still to be recognized in the Western canon of visual studies and activist history. In France, in the early 1970s, several activist collectives such as Vidéa (1974, Anne-Marie Faure, Isabelle Fraisse, Syn Guerin and Catherine Lahourcade) and Insoumuses (1975, Carole Roussopoulos, Delphine Seyrig and Iona Wieder) composed almost entirely of women took up the new portable video camera as an immediate and accessible tool to promote feminism, class and gender consciousness, direct democracy, and political action - all central ideals during the May ‘68 student movements in France and within second-wave feminism. They collectively produced videos (explicitly not artworks) that exploited the medium for their own sociopolitical agendas and self-representation at a time when society did not expect women to embrace technology.
