Art is something that is usually hard to pinpoint. And while everyone has a different perception of it, some messages are loud and clear, such as Emily Ludwig Shaffer’s. Her work explores the different stages of womanhood now and a couple of hundred years ago. Shaffer’s exhibition, In Stead of Me, her first solo exhibition at Berlin’s Peres Projects, opened early November and has impressed many since. KALTBLUT caught up with the American artist to discuss her work, the Italian writer Christine de Pizan and womanhood. Read the interview below.
