Brand New, Unread Copy in Perfect Condition. A+ Customer Service! Summary: The ladies of Pop Art play with art in the Bad Girl manner between Pin-Up and consumerism. These unconventional and powerful works are determined by female sexuality and lust, the post-war economic miracle and politics. Pop characterizes the humour and lightness of their attitude towards life. This book presents extraordinary women Pop artists. While it was mainly their male colleagues who have been celebrated up to the present, Power Up Female Pop Art now casts light for the first time on prominent women artists. In the tension field between Abstract Expressionism and Minimalism, figuration and abstraction, consumerism and capitalism criticism, the works by these artists certainly resemble those by their male colleagues in terms of material, subject matter and working method. But at the same time, a specific female methodology, approach or interest is established based on exemplary works. The artists document and subjectify the post-war boom years, reflect the superficiality of consumerism and meet mass taste as pioneering feminist positions in their pithiness, monumentality, the simple vocabulary of forms as well as the gaudy choice of colours, and nevertheless remain combative, critical and extraordinary. Artists include: Evelyne Axell, Christa Dichgans, Rosalyn Drexler, Jann Haworth, Dorothy Iannone, Sister Corita Kent, Kiki Kogelnik, Marisol, Niki de Saint Phalle Exhibition Power up Women Pop Artists, Kunsthalle Wien, 5 November 2010 23 January 2011.

Inhaltsangabe: Despite the frequent mockery by Pop artists of the Abstract Expressionists' machismo and swagger, the best-known artists of the Pop era (as art history has defined it) were men. Power Up explores a generation of female artists working in the Pop art milieu, whose concerns offered a more overt critique of consumerism and gender issues than their male counterparts. The works of Evelyne Axell, Christa Dichgans, Rosalyn Drexler, Jann Haworth, Dorothy Iannone, Sister Corita Kent, Kiki Kogelnik, Marisol and Niki de Saint Phalle share with their male contemporaries a brashness of color, cartoonish figuration and consumerist imagery, but set aside the Duchampian strategies of irony found in Johns or Warhol, in favor of a more animated, life-embracing, combative zest, political critique and direct expressions of sexuality and lust. Before feminism had coalesced into a coherent movement, these women dismantled consumerist exploitation of female imagery, critiqued capitalism and celebrated their desires, working among (if not alongside) their male contemporaries, across media and continents. Today, their art seems more prescient and adventurous than ever. This volume casts fresh light on the artists of this generation, some of whom attained fame individually, while others were less well served by art history. Throwing down the gauntlet to the historians, Power Up tracks this neglected chapter of Pop art in a blaze of color and defiant sensuality.
