Nancy Spero’s drawing of a naked, Celtic goddess is on the wall. Feminist art is still her favorite genre, says Barbara Wally, former head of the International Summer School of Fine Arts in Salzburg. During a trip to Yemen, she fell in love with her driver. They got married and she converted to Islam. Today, there is a post-it on the drawing – it serves as a learning aid but also as a blinder for her husband. These two levels are like an allegory for Wally’s life before and after the unconventional paradigm shift.
