Alina Szapocznikow. Documents. Works. Interpretations
Connie Butler

A discussion of Szapocznikow's work in the context of other artists working in Europe and America whose work also might be seen in a proto-feminist context around such issues as self-representation, soft-sculpture and the relationship of the gendered body to the materiality of sculpture.

Specifically this discussion will propose various groupings with the work of American artists Louise Bourgeois, Lynda Benglis, Hannah Wilke. The discussion will also address the grouping of works recently acquired by MOMA and considerations of exhibition and collection of the work outside Poland.
