Through the windows of the showcases the mostly architectural sculptures by Anna Bochkova (*1995) begin a close conversation with the painted works by Naama Salzberg (*1992), carrying them and carrying gestures. The dialogue between the two artists simultaneously is one between private and public space. Salzberg's prints of writing and hands
inscribe themselves into the surfaces and windows of Bochkova's architecture, which signifiy the junctions between city and home, between society and individual. The connection calls for a feeling of care, the utopian understanding of city and state as structures of care.
Anna Bochkova (*1995, lives and works in Hamburg and Vienna) works mainly sculpturally with a focus on space and politics in her art. After studying Bühnenbild at the MHAT in Moscow and the Akademie der bildenden Künste in Vienna, she is currently studying at the HFBK Hamburg.
Naama Salzberg (*1992, lives and works in Hamburg) is a story-teller, who develops narratives with lines, paint and words in her art. She graduated in 2020 from the photography department at HFBK Hamburg.
Visibility: Astrid Mania & Bettina Uppenkamp (in German)
In the first episode of the podcast the art historians Astrid Mania and Bettina Uppenkamp reflect on the visibility and representation of feminist art since its beginnings in the 1960ies and -70ies until today. Some things changed for good: within the exhibiting infrastructure, within art history and within debates. But still there is a lack of sites in the art world to debate specifically feminist themes. The good news is: It doesn’t have to remain the way it is.
