The Master's Tool will never Dismantle the Master's House

Exhibition Contribution Potenziale 3

Mixed Media Collage

Titled after the famous quote by Audre Lorde, the contribution for the Potenziale 3 deals with an umbrella topic and the general motivation of the PhD thesis. In contrast to art history, architecture and architectural history are still rather hesitant to even question the canon. When in fact the aim is merely to explore figures and works outside of it and eventually to adapt it to the present. Therefore, photographs of buildings that are indisputably part of the architectural canon have been reworked with embroideries that are modified and appropriated works by women artists (Hilma af Klint, Verena Löwensberg, Lucia Moholy, Toyin Ojih Odutola and Sophie Taeuber-Arp). The five collages are accompanied by a quoted title by the writer and activist Audre Lorde (2003). 

Exhibited at the Potenziale 3 at the aut from 15th of October 2021 until 12th of February 2022
