What the fem?
Feminist Perspectives from 1950 to the Present
Feminism! A term that still scandalises many people, that is heatedly debated, ignored, suppressed, and defended – in a nutshell: a term that has the potential to polarise. The exhibition sees itself as a discursive contribution to this socio-political topic, which has become impossible to overlook in the arts, in the social media, and – at the latest with the appearance of the medial capital I, the asterisk, the colon and concepts such as “women’s quota”, “mansplaining”, “femicide”, LGBTQIA+, and #metoo – in society at large.
Topical works of art and documentations of feminist actions and performances from the last seventy years raise questions of equality, gender stereotypes, and their social consequences.
