‘A ROOM OF ONE’S OWN’
Thursday 5 September 2019, 3 – 6 pm
The Seminar Room, Oslo Biennial
In the 1920s, Virginia Woolf longed for ‘A Room of One’s Own’ – a space for women in literature. Half a century later, art historian Linda Nochlin asked rhetorically: ‘Why Have There Been No Great Women Artists?’ Were there actually no women artists in the past – or have they just been pushed to the margins of the canon of art history? With two 20thcentury artists as case studies – Else Christie Kielland (1903–1993) and Eva Bull Holte (1922–1993) – will focus on Modernism. Who were these artists, why are so many women artists still little known, and which mechanisms are at play?

The significance of Hannah Ryggen (1894–1970) as one of the most important figures in the history of Scandinavian art has only recently been recognized internationally. Beloved and renowned for her original contributions to modernist tapestry, Ryggen made radical political statements against Fascism and Nazism before and during the Second World War. Using primary sources, Ryggen expert Marit Paasche brings us a much fuller knowledge of the artist, weaving her life and work into a story that illuminates not only the artist herself, but also 20th-century art history in general.
