In 1943 legendary collector and gallery owner Peggy Guggenheim opened at her Art of This Century gallery in New York the ›Exhibition by 31 Women‹ that focused exclusively on female avant-garde artists. With reference to this founding event of a feminist art history, the exhibition ›31: Women‹ shows women artists from the Daimler Art Collection. Historically, our exhibition begins in the 1930s with abstract graphics by the Hungarian artist Anne Beothy Steiner. From here, the horizon expands from European and American trends from Zero and Minimalism to international positions of Contemporary Art in the media of painting, photography, installation, sculpture, drawing and video. The show spans an arch from early tendencies to global, feminist perspectives in contemporary art.
