Anna Baumgart’s exhibition Revolution is not a dinner takes place at the meeting point of visual arts and the culture of debate, protest, silence. The artist takes on – once again – the role of a feminist archivist. By giving herself the right to make change in her own rhythm, she calls on women to formulate their own canon of feminist world history. In dialogue with the Dinner Party by Judy Chicago and the Polish history of the Round Table, she creates a catalogue of “heroines” to save their “non-heroic” biographies and portraits in a porcelain set.
Anna Baumgart – visual artist, performer, director; she creates sculptures, installations, videos, takes photographs. Representative of critical and feminist art. She uses the feminist perspective as a tool for diagnosing and criticising the society.
