School: Graphic design, MI-Bergen / Merkantilt Institutt (2005)
Course: art history
Project: research, write and design a small book about an artist
I chose Frida Kahlo. She wasn’t on the list of «important artists» that we were supposed to choose from, but I guess my teacher agreed that she should have been.
I didn’t really know that much about her at the time, but though this project I learned a lot about how (male) art historians have overlooked important female artist. Lucky me, later that year I had the opportunity to catch the Kahlo Exhibition at Tate Modern.
