Referencing Diana Watts and Dora Menzler’s contributions to the women’s physical culture movement of the early 20th Century, which drew inspiration from Greek philosophy, history and ideals, exploring notions of national collective identity vs personal expression through form, symmetry and balance in movement.
Conditions of an Ideal is a co-commission from Block Universe and Delfina Foundation, and is supported by the Mondriaan Fonds and The Embassy of the Kingdom of the Netherlands.
