THE DISSIDENT GODDESSES’ NETWORK is an interdisciplinary research project based on the important finds of female figurines from Lower Austria’s early and prehistoric period. It identifies issues connected to these finds and examines them from today’s perspective: What do these finds mean? Do they have an effect on the position of women today? What does the soil tell us, how are archaeology, economy and ecology interlinked? What recording systems could be used to map the things that the territory reveals? What future could be sketched out, what demands would have to be made? This book presents the results of a scientific-artistic research phase of the project that lasted several years, concluding with an exhibition at the State Gallery of Lower Austria in Krems entitled READING THE EARTH.
A project by the Academy of Fine Arts Vienna in association with FORUM MORGEN.
