VALIE EXPORT (1940, Linz, Austria)

VALIE EXPORT is a performance and video artist. Her often provocative works address the body and have a feministic undertone. VALIE EXPORT attained prominence in the 1960s and 70s, when—in search for sexual freedom—she did performances in the streets of Vienna. Later on in her career, the focus of her art developed towards a more general representation of the body, and the voice in particular, still discussing social and political issues. —VALIE EXPORT lives and works in Vienna, Austria.
