STARTING POINT

As the title “Women’s creativity since the Modern Movement” suggests, the project starting point is the Modern Movement, seen not only as a moment of great cultural clamor, but also as a political and social breaking point. The Modern Movement also represents the first historical landmark in women’s liberation.

The title clearly states one of the project objectives: creating a bridge connecting women’s past, present and future generations.

MoMoWo takes women’s creativity materialized in interior design, industrial design, architecture, urban planning, landscape architecture, architectural photography and civil engineering, in Europe, since the 1920s, as a cornerstone. The project predicates that the history of women’s creativity and the cultural heritage produced by their works isn’t still recognized enough, not only by the general public but also by scholars and professionals, due to a series of complex cultural and social barriers.
