Ulrike Hanstein is Professor of Art and Media Studies at the University of Art and Design Linz and director of the VALIE EXPORT Centre. The lecture deals with the educational goals, the working methods and the tradition of the Feminist Studio Workshop. The study programme for women artists developed by Judy Chicago, Sheila Levrant de Bretteville and Arlene Raven began its work in Los Angeles in autumn 1973. In dialogue with a video documentation by Pam MacDonald, Susan Mogul and Sheila Ruth (Feminist Studio Workshop Videoletter, 1975), the lecture examines the embodied performances of engagement and the collective forms of action that link feminist art and educational processes with political emancipation movements. Memory interviews, videos, texts, photographs, graphics and ephemera in special collections and archives offer a contemporary approach to the history of the Feminist Studio Workshop. How can these documents be read and activated?
