Magasinet Kunst‘s (DK) special edition on women in the arts is out now, May 2021.

The Danish artist Augusta Atla came up with the idea of an issue of Magasinet Kunst (DK) devoted to women and gender, and Augusta is the co-editor of this special edition on women in the arts.

Augusta Atla initiated a regular series of conversations with key people in the contemporary art scene – people who are working to create a real change when it comes to gender equality among artists. In this issue of Magasinet Kunst Augusta interviews Camille Morineau on the subject of gender equality in the world of art.

Camille Morineau, an acclaimed curator and art historian, is dedicated to promoting the brilliance of female  artists. Camille Morineau devised and curated the pioneering exhibition Elles@centrepompidou at the Pompidou Centre, Paris (FR) in 2009-2011. She is also the co-founder and director of AWARE, a non-profit organisation, research centre and archiving platform that promotes work by women artists.

The magazine also includes a critical essay by Augusta Atla on the SHOWDOWN WITH THE SEXISM OF THE DANISH ART SCENE.
