MAWU-LISA started in 2011 in an attempt to address the problematics of the numerous representations of femininity in visual arts. While the first edition was focused on the visual depictions of women online this edition will focus on a specific topic and medium: Flower Paintings and their connection to womanhood, the cliché of women as gaia, and the link between flower painters and the position of women in art history.
Changing the format of the first edition, which was projection based, MAWU-LISA 2013 asked the artists to participate in the project while following a series of rules (medium, size, topic), which they could interpret, play and adapt to their own usual practices.
