About the product

Kunstraum Niederoesterreich is showcasing the extensive oeuvre of performance artist Martha Wilson. The accompanying book “The Two Halves of Martha Wilson’s Brain” sheds light on two important sides of his spirited artist and performance pioneer: First, it includes a selection of Wilson’s own works, through which she has been intervening in the arts and politics scenes in subversive and original ways since the 1970s. The second integral part of Wilson’s practice is the “Franklin Furnace Archive, Inc.,” which she founded in 1976.  

“The Two Halves of Martha Wilson’s Brain” illustrates the fact that Martha Wilson, the artist, and Martha Wilson, the founder and director of Franklin Furnace, not only represent two parts of one world view but that her chosen fields of activity must also be seen as mutually constituent, inseparable facets of an artistic practice. Over more than forty years Martha Wilson has relentlessly pushed the borders of artistic expression in her various interwoven roles and functions, while shaping the (hi)stories of performance art, feminism, and alternative art spaces.
