Renate Bertlmann (February 28, 1943 in Vienna) is an Austrian feminist avant-garde artist, living and working in Vienna. She is a contemporary of Birgit Jürgenssen and VALIE EXPORT, and her work focuses on the relationship between masculine and feminine forms.
Between 1964 and 1970 Renate Bertlmann completed her studies at the Academy of Fine Arts Vienna. From 1970 to 1982 she was lecturer at the Academy. She has produced freelance work since 1982 in a variety of mediums including: drawings, paintings, objects, installations, photography, film/video, performances, multimedia-events, texts.[3] She is member of Vienna Secession and FLUSS – Society for the Promotion of Photo- and Media Art, Lower Austria. She has been married to the physicist Reinhold Bertlmann since1969.
Since the early 1970s Renate Bertlmann, feminist avant-garde artist, has explored issues around the representation of sexuality and eroticism within a social context. Despite its closeness to the nascent women’s art movement in the 1970s, revolting against a male-dominated world and developing new aesthetics to represent the female body, Bertlmann’s work distinguished itself by its inclusion of the masculine point of view. Working with collages, drawings, photographs, photo-films, performances and objects, her work has always played, not without humour, on the ambivalence of the feminine and masculine relationship in terms of sexuality and desire, challenging the stereotyped, preconceived roles assigned by society. Deepening society’s preconceptions, from 1975 she developed a series of works using latex teats and inflated condoms, associating the phallic with the feminine and addressing issues of contraception and motherhood. Including pornography in her work from the 1980s onwards, Bertlmann has pursued throughout her career an interrogation on gender relations.
This is particularly visible in her series of works Exhibitionism 1973, in which curved abstract forms and soft pale pink colours evoke the contours of a feminine body, while the two egg-shaped protruding objects directly allude to male genitals. What look at first sight like abstract lines refers in fact to male and female corporeality, furtively displaying a pair of legs and a backside that support two testicles. As the title suggests, the viewer is presented with an act of exhibitionism. In her constant work on the interrelationship between the masculine and the feminine, Bertlmann manages to render the interchangeability of sexes and of sexual desires by deceiving conventions.

Renate Kordon: VogelKino/BirdCinema 2016 kunstGarten

Renate Kordon’s artistic work spans a polymorphous spectrum of techniques and mediathat defies conventional stylistic classification. It ranges from drawings, satirical comicsand series of psychogrammatic pictures and objects to experimental animation filmsor sculptural interventions in public space: a work culminating in an oeuvre characterised by the dialectical tensionbetween the rational/objective and the surreal/subjective, the material and the spiritual,and marked by a desire to shift ostensible reality into alternative realities of spiritual/emotional states.

Poetry of the line

As far as I am concerned, studying the line – as a rudimentary device of artistic repertoire – is a challenge, as it is through the reduction to the line to its original state that not limited but unlimited possibilities of form and expression are created. The variation of the line is inexhaustible. As far as simplicity and frugality are concerned, the line, as a primary element, is not of a simple nature as the tension in the line itself becomes more significant. A line is created – the pencil/the colour glides – every movement brings about a variation and it is in this way that the line becomes an expression of every movement. Meditative, seemingly calm – all movements become visible in fine nuances. Through the line – drawn freehand – expression is created which is comparable with handwriting; writing without words. The variations in the line and the sum of the lines, visible in the form created, make the production of simple poetry possible. At the same time it is also an attempt to liberate ourselves from the unnecessary and to concentrate on the basics through the chosen reduced forms and through the choice of simple and frugal shapes. My subjects are often – not recognisable at first sight – taken from nature or nondescript objects, which are not considered particularly aesthetic everyday objects. Importance is usually placed on details, as seen through a microscope, which give them a new significance. The line is, to a certain extent, also a metaphor for things which are created and then which disappear again leaving hardly any clear traces of their existence. It is all to do with simplicity and the hidden, with the temporary and the fleeting.
