Women have always written art history and worked on eye-level with their male contemporaries. Together they claimed new paths and caused sensations – but despite this neither their names nor their works are known today. Up to this day women play minor roles in art history and are rarely mentioned as trailblazers of new art styles. Lost Women Art explores the mechanisms of this systematic omission of highly-talented artists. In two parts the documentary takes a look at the forgotten artists, tells the story of the suppressed female avantgarde and by doing so re-tells art history.
