 ona b. - democratic intervention, sex sells politics

 ona b. ranks among the most important representatives of feminist art in austria. after studying painting under adolf frohner, she founded the artistic collective “die damen” (“the ladies”) together with evelyn egerer, birgit jürgenssen and ingeborg strobl. lawrence weiner has also been a member of the group since 1993.

she works as a multi-media artist with a focus on painting, installation, performances, sound and land art. her favorite means of expressing herself is the color red. and although she may have once changed the normal hue of the vienna secession to blue, her actual working medium still remains the color red. “red represents energy, the flow of life”, as ona b. explains herself, “all essential things are red. blood, fire, the sun.“

 

in her exhibition “democratic intervention, sex sells politics“ the artist makes use of vintage cinema posters, i.e. soft-porn posters from 1970s/80s istanbul, which she presents like propaganda material whose formation and driving force in times of political turmoil she places into the context of new discussions. the erotic actors have all been given the face of the artist herself. the new titles are part of the protest movement against the 45th president of the united states.
