11.9 – 19.10 1975

In collaboration with Kulturhuset in Stockholm, the International Women’s Year was celebrated with an exhibition divided into 5 sections: Women’s Work – Women’s Culture, Women in Art History, Serfdom – One’s Own Life, Work – Without Wearing Oneself Out, and Art by Women about Women. Regardless of age, many women were captivated by Monica Englund’s subtle photographs featuring naked pregnant women in various situations. Her photographs were part of the Women section under the theme of Serfdom – One’s Own Life.

The artist Pye Engström’s family group of giant stuffed dolls invited delightful play and togetherness. The idea was for these stuffed toys to be mass-produced and made available as play sculptures in preschools.
