“Exploring My Body’s Space: Anu Põder – Updates”

Anu Põder, a significant figure in Estonia’s art scene from the 1970s to 2013, is finally receiving recognition for her unique and deeply personal sculptures that delve into the fragility and impermanence of life. Her use of unconventional materials like textile, wax, and wood sets her work apart, as she navigated the challenges of being a female artist during the Soviet occupation and Estonia’s subsequent independence.

A retrospective exhibition titled “Anu Põder: Space for My Body” at Muzeum Susch curated by Cecilia Alemani marks the first major showcase of Põder’s work outside of Estonia. This exhibition sheds light on Põder’s contribution to post-war art and provides a comprehensive overview of her artistic journey.

To further enrich the understanding of Põder’s work, a one-day symposium has been organized alongside the exhibition. This symposium will feature prominent art experts and scholars discussing the significance of Põder’s art and its impact on the art world. The event aims to elevate the international recognition of Põder’s oeuvre and open up new interpretations of her work to a broader audience.

The symposium will cover various aspects of Anu Põder’s art, including her exploration of the human body, her unique artistic voice, and her significance in the context of Estonian and international art scenes. Through lectures, panel discussions, screenings, and an online guided tour of the exhibition, participants will gain a deeper insight into Põder’s artistic vision and creative process.

For those interested in attending the symposium, registration is free and more information about the program and web-stream can be found on the Muzeum Susch website. The symposium will be conducted in English and will be recorded for those unable to attend in person.
