| Edited by | Herausgegeben von | Elke Krasny + Frauenmuseum Meran

Initiating a dialogue between the network of women’s museums and feminist practices in curating, this volume gathers different perspectives from art historians, artists, curators, educators, historians, human rights activists, museum directors, researchers, scholars, and theorists. It juxtaposes essays, interviews, email dialogues, and excerpts from the transcripts of two symposia on Women:Museum hosted at the Vienna City Library and at the Meran Women’s Museum. Resulting in a contemporary transnational historiography, this compendium charts issues of feminist strategies in and out of the museum, and examines public engagement through curatorial activism.

In 1911 Le Corbusier made a reversed ‘Grand Tour’ to the Orient. Starting out in Berlin he travelled to Prague, Vienna, Budapest, Belgrade, Bucharest, Istanbul, Athens, Napels, Rome and back home to La Chaux-de Fonds. The English translation turned his Voyage d’Orient intoThe Journey to the East. In 2011 Elke Krasny (AT) and David Bergé (BE) travelled to Athens, Belgrade, Istanbul, Rome and Vienna and had conversations with local activists, architects, artists and intellectuals focusing on the urban characteristics and transformation, on monuments and the ideologically loaded terms East and the Orient. Le Corbusier’s voyage reORIENTed 1911-2011, follows these narratives: Elke Krasny composed a multivoiced text-based installation and David Bergé a photographic exploration, aiming to capture transitional contemporary urbanities in a complex dialogue between text and image.

Doing Art in the Public Realm
