HERSTORYMUSEUM is an imaginary museum that, through its collection and curatorial program, develops a rhizomatic and non-hierarchical narrative on women creators of the 20th century. Its collection is composed by images based on a visual language close to the pictogram.

FLUXUS FEMINIS, the exhibition I will be presenting at Freijo Gallery as part of the LZ46 program, offers a view of the women artists linked to the FLUXUS movement of the 60s and early 70s. Artists who worked in the field of performance, dance, sound art and other experimental languages.

The Frauenmuseum Wiesbaden is opening the exhibition ‘The art of remembrance. Alice Salomon (1872-1948)‘ 2. September 2018 — 10. February 2019

Exiled from Germany in 1937, Alice Salomon died in New York, alone, in August 1948. The same year in December, Swiss artist DESSA (Deborah Sharon Abeles) was born in Southern Rhodesia, today Zimbabwe.
Who was Alice Salomon? Social reformer, educator, feminist, economist and peace activist, Alice Salomon founded the Social School for Women in Berlin in 1908. Only recently did the artist herself learn about the intensive life and achievements of this extraordinary woman pioneer to whom we owe so much. The more the artist read and learned about Alice Salomon, the more parallels and echoes between their personal and international lives came to light.
DESSA revives our collective memory. She uses various techniques to create a tangible approach to Alice Salomon’s life: paintings, collages, objects, installations and an imaginary conversation together form a thorough narrative. The frauen museum wiesbaden presents this exhibition for the first time to coincide with 70 years since Alice Salomon’s death.
A book published by Verlag Hentrich & Hentrich accompanies the exhibition.

DESSA lives and works in Berlin and in Pully, Switzerland.

HERSTORYMUSEUM was created by artist María María Acha-Kutscher as a virtual museum in 2017. Now the museum opened the first exhibition. We congratulate!

OTHERNESS is the first online exhibition of HERSTORYMUSEUM showing special visions from the past centuries of representations of women from colonized, groups created by female artists from dominant groups, where –without discarding the contradictions– the presence of the Otherness is not so evident, perhaps because they have been conceived by women. As Simone de Beauvoir argued: The Other of Man is Woman (1952).
