Louisiana poster featuring the work, Untitled (1932), by the Swiss artist, Sophie Taeuber-Arp (1889-1943). Taeuber-Arp was one of eight determined, uncompromising and experimental women whose work was featured in the exhibition, Women of the Avant-Garden 1920-1940, at Louisiana in 2012.

With the exhibition, Louisiana shed light on a number of significant artists who were driving forces in the avant-garde movements that characterized Europe in the post-war period: Dada, Constructivism and Surrealism.

Two of the exhibited artists are in Louisiana's collection, Sophie Taeuber-Arp and Sonia Delaunay. Based on handicrafts, the two developed a new and different sensibility for, among other things, color composition, where Taeuber-Art gave geometric-abstract art its own voice.

Louisiana's exhibition helped to develop awareness of strong, female artists in an otherwise male-dominated art history. The women of the avant-garde helped to redefine art and at the same time also challenged the notion of what women can, should and must.

The women did not, like the male artists, have a historically grounded platform in academies and in artist groups, which of course presented them in the art world. They had to create a path for themselves, and independence, openness and mobility recur as a red thread in the lives and works of all eight female artists.
