Womankind. 365 days. Day 131

María María Acha-Kutscher

365 Days outlines a sequence of images in the form of a year-long diary that invites spectators to construct associations based on their particular iconographies. These are small prints that demand solitary observation. The collages are made up of a wide range of archival materials: photographs downloaded from the Internet or taken by the artist, clippings from women’s magazines and books. The result is the construction of a very poetic imaginary in which the presence of women in photography not only subtly shifts from the margins to the centre, but also appears in roles that contradict official history. The project is firstly part of the history of feminist art and secondly part of the tradition of photographic collage from artist such as Hannah Hoch and Dora Maar. Acha-Kutscher achieves her aim of creating a parallel universe in this work, as immense as Balzac’s The Human Comedy, in which the women of the past finally speak to us in their own voice.
