Room Of One’s Own Part 2

  • Conceptual Art
  • Digital-Art
  • Mixed reality

From November 19, 2021 to March 5, 2022, Galerie Rüdiger Schöttle Munich presents the group exhibition “Room of One’s Own” in two parts.

“Nevertheless, I believe that this poetess, who never wrote a word and was buried at a crossroad, is still alive. (…) She lives in you, in me and in many other women who are not here today. Yes, she lives. For true women poets do not die.” — Virginia Woolf. A Room of One’s Own. 1929

The exhibition is based on the narrative of the well-known novel by Virginia Woolf, which became a standard read of the women’s movement in the 1970s. As a young woman, Virginia Woolf was subjected to the conditions of Victorian society, which provided only a very very narrow sphere of activity and development for women. Even today, her novel is particularly relevant, opening up a universal discussion about the need for a space for creation, for stillness and, of course, for art. In our group exhibition, we present the work of a variety of outstanding women artists who approach their work in relation to science, history and literature, shaping the course of art history.

“Room of One’s Own Part 2”, the continuation of the currently running exhibition at Galerie Rüdiger Schöttle in Munich, includes not only physical works by female artists, but expands into the field of digital art.

Parallel to the physical exhibition in the gallery, we will show digital works in the form of NFTs from January, 20 2022. The NFTs will be presented either on a new startup platform or the NFT marketplace OpenSea. Minting (technical/organizational process to create NFTs for selected digital works) is handled by Galerie Rüdiger Schöttle.

This Open Call is aimed at female digital artists. Our goal is to support female artists in the digital art scene and to include them in the context of the gallery. Galerie Rüdiger Schöttle has been representing positions of conceptual content since 1968. Also for the exhibition “Room of One’s Own Part 2” digital works are preferred, which deal with a (social, political, historical or even scientific) context and lead to theoretical discussions.
