"IF I CAN'T DANCE, I DON'T WANNA BE PART OF YOUR REVOLUTION"
#2 Feminist Positions from the Modern Collection of the Tiroler Landesmuseen / Ferdinandeum
Curator: Florian Waldvogel
 
In the 1940s, Marcel Duchamp initiated “Exhibition by 31 Women”, the first art exhibition to be held with exclusively female artists. “If I can’t dance, I don’t wanna be part of your Revolution”, a presentation with thirteen women artists from the Modern Collections, curated by Florian Waldvogel, is a continuation of this feminist art historiography. It combines historical representatives of the Austrian avant-garde with international positions and recent developments.
 
The title of the presentation is a quotation from the anarchist and feminist theorist Emma Goldman, who rejected all forms of institutions on the grounds that they cemented traditional moral attitudes and were an obstacle to the human quest for emancipation.
