In 24 x 18 cm „the artist addresses history-shaping processes on the basis of an archival find, discovered in the Lieven-Gevaertarchief, Mortsel. Her starting point is a set of copies of worksheets with reference images and size specifications for image reproductions. Katrin Kamrau reproduces them in a screen-printing process on nettle cloth and in an accompanying workbook. These [material] had been compiled from the mid-1980s onwards by a project group around the Belgian historian and gender studies pioneer Denise de Weerdt, for the traveling exhibition Vastberaden Vrouwen. In order to visualize the women’s movement history from a Belgian perspective, newspaper clippings, illustrations and photographs related to the emancipatory endeavor were collected from various sources and eventually arranged in five categories: “Women’s Council and Feminism”, “The Right to Work”, “The Fight for Women’s Suffrage”, “Women in War and Peace”, and “In the Third World”. […]The artist’s reissue of these by-products of a still emerging canon formation shifts the focus from image content to its conditions of appearance. It refers to the possibilities and preconditions of alternative historiography (herstory), and at the same time shows up its constructedness, fragility and blind spots..“ — Elisabeth Pichler
