“We need to leave behind the idea of a canon, of this ‘You all need to see this and appreciate it’. How can we learn to accept diverging art histories?” – Mathilde ter Heijne
The performance Private view addresses the lack of representation of female positions in classical art history and tries to reframe and expand this history. Works by female visual artists will be embedded in the performance context and reactivated by the performers. Personal conversations, interviews and documentary material covering the time between the 1970s and today will be the foundation for a poetic composition juxtaposing and making visible both the familiar and the unfamiliar. Objects and texts will take the shape of a performative installation setting.
