Animated films by Maria Lassnig: On the occasion of our prestigious new award, the Maria Lassnig Golden Film Reel, Tricky Women/Tricky Realities 2022 pays homage to one of the most important Austrian artists of the 20th and 21st centuries and presents Maria Lassnig’s animated film works. Independent of her painting, but closely connected with it, Maria Lassnig’s (animated) films take a humorous and critical look at the rigid, outdated (male) standards of earlier periods of art. The program includes some of Lassnig’s so-called films in progress — films that have recently been made available. Find out more about Animated films by Maria Lassnig >> here.
