Rosebud #8 Pola Weiss
"I am a teleasta before everything else. Video to me is like my other voice, my other gaze, my other self", is how Pola Weiss (MX, 1947-1990) introduced herself early on in her career. Weiss produced video art and television programmes from the mid-1970s onwards in which she experimented with dance, performance, music and innovative visual effects such as chroma-key and solarisation effects. Weiss was Mexico's first video art pioneer. She became particularly famous for her 'videodanzas', in which she combined performance and dance and performed while filming herself and the audience. The female body and the position of women played an important role in her work. However, rather than criticising the oppression and objectification of women, which was the common mission of feminist women artists at the time, Weiss was interested in showing the woman who enjoys watching and being watched. Thus, she undermined the binary dichotomy between (male) subject and (female) object, performer and spectator, and introduced a female gaze. Or as artist Monica Mayer remarked after seeing Ciudad Mujer Ciudad: "I was surprised that the leading lady was a real (not idealised) woman (…) It was a woman seen by a woman".12 May up to 16 Jul — ROZENSTRAAT | a rose is a rose is a rose
