included in Art Basel’s 2019 Unlimited sector
13/06 – 16/06/2019
Presented by Thaddaeus Ropac, Salzburg, Paris, and London
Art Basel, Switzerland
The Austrian trailblazer’s oeuvre remains highly influential, even beyond the topical corsets in which she is often enclosed. It is therefore particularly exciting to see her featured in this year’s Unlimited, where Thaddaeus Ropac will present her work SYNTAGMA (1983).

VALIE EXPORT Expanded Arts
24/10/2019 – 12/01/2020
Curator Brigitte Huck
Gilles Mora presents three exhibitions dealing with rock, architecture or feminist themes, with completely different aesthetic tendencies. The season begins with Andy Summers, a former policeman alongside Sting, musician and photographer. The next exhibition is dedicated to Canadian architectural photographer Lynne Cohen, followed in autumn by feminist performer and activist VALIE EXPORT.
VALIE EXPORT was born as Waltraud Lehner in 1940 in Linz, where she attended the School for the Arts and Crafts. In 1964 she graduated from HBLVA for Textile Industry in Vienna. Since 1967 she has been going by the name VALIE EXPORT, an artistic concept and logo. She works with a wide range of media and caught the attention with actions in public space that belonged to the field of performance and to media art and were developed from a feminist perspective.
