The organizers of the exhibition for the first time trying to present and explore the twenty-year experience of Russian gender Arts

Today, 10 September, the Moscow Museum of Modern Art (Petrovka 25) will open the exhibition «ŽEN d'ART. Gender history of art in the former Soviet Union: 1989-2009 ».

One of the exciting story of post-Soviet Russia has become a gender discourse. The word "gender" and "feminism" appear in our vocabulary at the same time with the words "perestroika", "democracy", "pluralism". On the ruins of the Soviet system there art practices, which determined the new quality of public spaces - in particular, radical actionism, widely recognized and has already entered into history, art and gender, for the first time in this exhibition as an artistic phenomenon.

Adoption of the female gaze and the problem of interaction between sexes in the local contemporary art conjugate with the specifics of post-Soviet context. Soviet policy, by equalizing the rights of men and women, led to a leveling of androgynous sex differences in the society. This, however, does not contradict the presentation of the ideological space of femininity, understood by the parent function. This specific national context, to define the features of language, strategies and relevant gender perspectives of the Russian art of the nineties.

In the wake of general interest in gender-art in the early 1990's are formed and begin to actively work on the basis of university research organization "idiom" in Moscow and "Cyber-Femin Club" in St. Petersburg Center for the Arts at Pushkinskaya 10. They are an informal association of women artists and in the absence of institutional support for gender-art deploying active exhibition activities. In the long term collective exhibitions artists and artists of their personal projects reveals the growth of gender consciousness, the development of gender imagery and art.
