An exhibition and series of events at the Bremen Central Office for the Realization of Equal Rights for Women, featuring artworks, installations, performances, and lectures by twenty-one artists, among them Barbara Bloom, Cindy Sherman, Kiki Smith, Alison Knowles, and Valie Export. From Richter-Glück’s introduction: “The curatorial concept of the ‘female coalities’ series is based in part on the ideas of the Italian philosophers of the Luica Muraro school in Verona and the Libereria delle donne in Milan who have established a symbolic matriarchal system above and beyond the partriarchal system in which we all undoubtedly live. Stimulated by discussions about this approach I have interpreted their proposed forms of symbolic communication and implemented them as a guide for direct action.”.
