The Female Eye

The Darkroom @ The New Museum of Networked Art
is featuring during NewMediaFest 2020 occasionally screening programs under certain topics.

Today, the thematic focus is directed on “The Female Eye!”
Generally the share of females in the Western society is more than 50%, and it is no secrete as it is said, that in addition to the physical difference, the female emotional and psychological condition is different than the male one. Indeed, the majority of all artists Wilfried collaborated with since 2000 is – female. Is this majority dealing with different topics, and additionally in different ways? The viewer or user is invited to make up his/her mind.

The 1st part of the curated show is including 32 female participants from the years 2004-2020 represented in 5 screening programs – each one of a duration of about 30 minutes. The term “compilation” would be wrong, one has to speak rather of a composition incorporating individual works generating the “whole” of an image, in these terms the images of the 5 presented programs generate a new image as a basis for one’s reflection. In this way, there does not exist an objective image, the programs form the basis for the images each viewer is generating according to his individual experiences.
