Androcentrism - destruction by patriarchal structures

https://www.youtube.com/shorts/ShU6DlksEeU
This cycle shows how patriarchal forms of rule presume to oppress humanity.

The globalization of patriarchal structures, which are based on competition, domination, exploitation and oppression, lead to the ever faster spread of violence, destruction, flight and impoverishment.

The destructive violence of patriarchal systems of rule has escalated to threaten the entire world in a global apocalyptic scenario where the collapse of civilization and the very existence of humanity are at stake. Let’s look at the hopeless and depressing perspectives for women and children in authoritarian regimes ruled by men, in conflict and war regions. Especially monotheistic religions are misused to suppress human rights and women.The artist demonstrates this destruction with her radical art. The phallus as a hegemonic symbol is intended to indicate responsibility that is being ignored. Shredded banknotes show the futility of greed and greed. The „LINEN RELIEF“ technique she uses is new in fine art. Through the use of linen and padding, the artist creates a three-dimensional work of art on canvas. The liveliness of the objects is initiated by light and shadow on the relief.

MoneyEaters

In this cycle which was awarded 2015 on the London Art Biennale Monika Stahl shows multicultural heads of men eating money. Supplementary to it the money is in their head or their senses are dominated exclusively by money. This culture of focussing on the material is found especially by men, they subordinate everything in favour to money, and there is no space for other values or targets. In this way the heads signify allegories for the materialism of the society.

The Wall

The wall that separates us from being

The struggle for money People struggle and cannot get enough. „Subordinate yourself to nature“ is the motto. Dominium terrae – Is this a license for unlimited resource exploitation or a call for a sustainable lifestyle?

Genetic manipulation, monocultures, chemical fertilization, regulation of water flows, acidification of the oceans,

suffocating plastic waste, unrestrained economic growth and unlimited profit maximization are the top maxim.

Overcoming Women can overcome the wall of patriarchs. They are the ones who reproduce life and bear the responsibility.

Equality can restore balance. The fine-tuning of the natural constants must come back into balance.

Money and technology alone cannot save us. Let us wait until hurricanes, floods, earthquakes,

illnesses and other catastrophes bring us to our senses. With the equality of women, neoliberalism can be overcome.

The Escape If our living space is ruined, the question will arise: „Where are we escaping to?“

According to the UNHCR, there are already more than 80 million people who are fleeing war, hunger and natural disasters.

Nature wins This picture shows how nature recaptures her living space. If we humans destroy ourselves, then plants and animals will systematically recapture our urban areas, as we already know from various high cultures. Nature, the universe remains No people are visible here anymore, because they were not able to humble submit to the eternal cycle.animals will systematically recapture our urban areas, as we already know from various high cultures.

Broken Europe


The Star is a symbol of eternity, although being torn up.
Steel is a sign of durability, imperishability, and a symbol of civilization, though eaten up by rust.
The lances are a symbol of destruction.
The heads out of money are a sign of double standards.

The star was created in 2011 and unfortunately remains very up to date. The united Europe is once again facing a crucial test. Populist forces are trying with all their might to destroy unity.

Diameter 120 cm Height 180 cm Life-size heads.

Material: rusty steel, lances, heads covered with real banknotes from Austria, Germany, France, Belgium, Finland

NYC

In this early cycle Monika Stahl uses banknotes to colourful collages. In this way the money looses cruelly the value, she shows that it is only printed – partially cut – simple paper and consequently valueless. The graphic setting shows the light in the New York City skyline as a symbol – because the cycle has been created there. It seems as a promise – however, the optimism is false. Every order is subordinated under the money regime. There is no space for emotions; the works seem to be cold. The banknotes attract the interest of the spectator as a focus. In the works there are no urges or morality, the reality of the world touches because of the political dissection. Money dominates the world of which no escape is possible.
