Sanja Iveković was a pioneering figure within the Yugoslavian feminist movement of the 1970s. Her work in photomontage, video, and performance explores the role of women in society, using her own life and history as source material. Iveković’s series GEN XX comprises six black-and-white photographs of women, all but one appropriated from advertisements, and replaces the text, slogans, and product references with the names of anti-fascist, female resistance fighters from Nazi-occupied Yugoslavia. GEN XX suggests that these revolutionary figures should be held up as heroines, and should be as recognizable to us as the most popular models in the world.
