.bien faite, mal faite, pas faite - Project XX Story voor het S.M.A.K.

27.01 until 20.05.2007

Why were there no female artists before the 20th century? Agnès Thurnauer (Paris, 1962) gives material form to this question by changing the male first names of all the great artists into female names. This will enable you to meet such artists as Annie Warhol and Josephine Beuys. By suddenly making this fairly abstract question visible, she creates a humorous form that is the opposite of the historical form. A new population is born which penetrates the museum like a virus: XX Story infects the S.M.A.K. and can be seen on the walls, the badges the male and female visitors are given with their tickets, and so on. One thing is certain, no one, man or woman, can escape it!
