Happy International Women’s Day! This issue of UKS Forum is a piece of women’s and art history, in the form of a recently completed Master’s thesis on the women that participated in UKS’ first 50 years of existence, carried out by UKS’ Kaja Breckan – currently Administrative Director and long-time employee – who has been researching women’s roles as members of the administration and board, exhibitors and union members. Accompanying this text is a chapter by art historian and Breckan’s advisor at the University of Oslo, Øystein Sjåstad, on UKS’ first female union members, which was published last year in his book Modernismens billedkunst i Norge – en feministisk aksjon. Both texts are only available in Norwegian. If you’re interested in accessing this research in English, please reach out to info@uks.no.
