Synopsis: For A… is a journey through auto-biographic experiences of the artist and woman Silke Grabinger. She engages in a very personal way with the layers and meanings of femininity, through associatively connected images inspired by theater and film-making. The focus is the construction of gender, its social representation and the construction of subjectivity-concepts relating to the production of Self and Other found in the Pop-culture of the post-industrial era. Femininity does not only serve as a canvas for the projection of male fantasies or as a social mechanism, but also as the possibility and departure point for the contemplation of expectations to oneself and from others.
