Postcards in Art - Mathilde ter Heijne

Mathilde ter Heijne is a Berlin-based Dutch artist and feminist activist. Her postcard installation Woman to Go , is currently in the exhibition “Time Present – Photography from the Deutsche Bank Collection” at Palais Populaire in Berlin, Germany. Of course, it is no view in November*.

In her work, Mathilde ter Heijne is concerned with reconstructing suppressed and lost biographies and photographs of women from the 19th and early 20th centuries and raising awareness of them—literally to go.

For more information and pictures of “Women To Go”, a postcard-wallinstallation, see the artist’s website:
