    About The Work

    To commemorate the exhibition Polly Apfelbaum. Happiness Runs, the edition A Potential was developed in close collaboration with the artist. This edition revisits the subject of Polly Apfelbaum’s 2017 work The Potential of Women and translates it into a colorful composition in enamel on metal. The subject shows the front view of an abstract female head with a black bob hairstyle. It references the illustration for a symposium in 1963 that explored the emancipation of women but completely neglected the current issues and demands of 1960s’ feminism. Over fifty years later, Polly Apfelbaum borrowed both its graphic subject and its title: it served as her starting point to shine a light on the historical and contemporary dimensions of equality.
