Women, Politics, and Art: Presented by the German Consulate General in New York and 1014-Space for Ideas

25 March 2021

Art, politics, and gender are deeply intertwined as art is inevitably a product of specific socio-political contexts. Governmental censorship and political interference even more so affect the experience of women living in societies in which there is no freedom of artistic expression, to create, or to distribute diverse cultural expressions. 

Join 1014 for a discussion with artist Cornelia Thomsen, who spent the first 20 years of her life in the former German Democratic Republic (GDR) before immigrating to the United States, and artist Tiffany Chung, who left Vietnam for the United States at the age of five but stayed deeply rooted in the Vietnamese history. Moderated by Curator Frauke Josenhans, Associate Curator at the Moody Center for the Arts.
