May we present our member… HerStoryMuseum

Oct 4, 2017

HERSTORYMUSEUM is a fictional museum founded by artist María María Acha-Kutscher in 2017. Its aim is to show a history of art through a global archive of female artists.

The project turns the artists’ portraits with their works into pictograms. A visual language that reminds us one of the first communication forms in history of humankind. The museum also expands to other circuits different from the art system, like the Internet and public spaces through murals.

HERSTORYMUSEUM adds to the large list of museums created by artists to display impossible worlds or question the status quo of art and join to other initiatives that fight against the invisibility of women artists, to build an inclusive panorama. HERSTORYMUSEUM includes also a narrative that moves away from the concept of “the genius figure” imposed by the patriarchal system, to give access to other ways of doing and seeing art.
