She is the other gaze (Sie ist der andere Blick) / Christiana Perschon, Austria, 2018, 90 min

"The machismo here was vehement." Any of the artists could have made this statement: Renate Bertlmann, Linda Christanell, Lore Heuermann, Karin Mack, or Margot Pilz. What unites the women, who were all part of the Viennese art scene in the 1970s, is the memory of an era of humiliating paternalism. In She is the other gaze, filmmaker Christiana Perschon lets these women, born between 1936 and 1943, tell their stories of male ignorance and the invisibility associated with that, of denial of their creativity, of a situation in which their only possibility to learn was from men. 
 
Nonetheless, what defines the documentary is its protagonists´ passion and positivity. Their resistance ultimately found a prolific echo in the Austrian women´s movement — in initiatives such as the Aktion unabhängiger Frauen (AUF) and the feminist artists´ network Intakt

Encouraged by the Frankfurter Schule slogan "the private is the political," and reinforced by a collective of likeminded women, these forerunners found the courage to transform what was pressing on their minds into artistic works. Perschon provides this act of self-empowerment a creative form in She is the other gaze: the white primed canvases by the artist Iris Dostal serve as a symbolic platform in the film, as a stage for narration and work. A respectful free space emerges in which the artists are invited to collaborate with the director in presenting and staging their works. 

The film screening is free and available on the website for a period of two weeks. This initiative was realised in collaboration with the Austrian Cultural Forum in Belgrade and the organization Sixpackfilm. The film is in German with English subtitles.
