Monica Ross: Ghost in the Spinning Mill
Until 18 December 2022
Monica Ross: Ghost in the Spinning Mill at Halle 14 in Leipzig is the first comprehensive exhibition in Germany of British artist Monica Ross (1950-2013) who worked with video, drawing, installation, text and performance. Ross first came to prominence as a feminist artist and organiser and was co-responsible for collective initiatives such as the seminal women’s postal art event (Feministo: Representations of the Artist as Housewife, 1977). The exhibition takes its title from her 1985 piece recalling vanished industrial work in an abandoned spinning mill, paying tribute to the seldom-noticed role of female workers.
