TALK: Carla Zaccagnini on Elements of Beauty

Meet the artist and find out more about her project and research on feminist movements from the beginning of 20th century.

The programme is in English
In collaboration with Folkuniversitetet
 

Röda Sten Konsthall has presented two parts of Carla Zaccagninis extensive work Elements of Beauty as part of the exhibitions Out of Words, in summer 2018, and now in the exhibition Ingen rök utan eld. Shout fire!.

The event focuses on Carla Zaccagnini’s research on the actions of the Suffragettes against museums and galleries in the United Kingdom in 1913–1914. Meant to draw attention to topics such gender equality, women’s rights, the actions were also part of the intense fight for women voting rights. One of the faces of the suffragette movement, Mary Richardson, said “I care more for justice than I do for art”.
