Some of the texts for the column I will translate to English and publish on

– This column will map new perspectives and explore a new land of the future, in which diversity, the history of gender and gender fluidity are a matter of course. My aim is to shed light on issues that have been hidden away in history, and outline gender issues in art history using cases from exhibitions, new foundations, films, libraries and publications. I will also discuss the political backbone and virtues of our times in relation to the political and institutional practices of contemporary art and, in a broader context, anything that makes my heart miss a beat.

Behind the column:

Women Painters is founded by Augusta Atla and is a non-profit, education-oriented instagram profile aimed at increasing awareness among art industry professionals of the high quality work that women artists create. The main mission is to catalyse gender equality in contemporary art now.

The project is very much inspired by my muse Reese Witherspoon who founded Hello Sunshine – a media company that puts women at the centre of every story they create and celebrate.æsentation-af-kvindelige-kunstnere-i-museers-udstillinger-og-indkøb
