THE SCOPE OF FEMINISM IN THE ARTISTIC FIELD – ROLF ART THINKS EVERYTHING OVER AGAIN
To think everything over again, a virtual exhibition by Buenos Aires based gallery Rolf Art, presents contemporary elements along those of Argentine history that the curator, Andrea Giunta, organizes in 6 chapters. Each one of them delves into different concepts regarding the excluded and the hidden, the relationships with life, with absence, with the closeness and distance of affections with the new forms of daily life and the State. […] In this scenario, feminism emerges to observe global change, contemporary notions of community, the crisis of anthropocentric models and of human exceptionalism.
The exhibition is composed of an essay that is developed through thematic and conceptual axes, creating contact zones between the works to give new life to the affective and political field of the images. These axes or chapters are: I. Policies of the Body; II. Forms that administer the body; III. Affects; IV. Memories that are present; V. Urban signs & VI Bodies and nature.
