Marianne Maderna: Radical Busts
VIENNA, AUSTRIA • University of Vienna, main building • 2 March - 17 April 2015
|For the 650th Jubilee of the University of Vienna, the Austrian inter-disciplinary artist, Marianne Maderna installs a series of busts of significant women in the arcade courtyard of the main building of the university, presently used to display commemorative plaques and busts of almost all male academics associated with the institution, thus, de facto not acknowledging the work of women. Many cities have a dedicated place to commemorate people who impacted history. Too often, these so-called Halls of Fame are predominantly reserved for men.|
