The Female Gaze

In German Contemporary Painting and Sculpture

Is there a female gaze in art?

Five female painters and one sculptress from Berlin and Leipzig have been invited to share their gaze with us. In their paintings and sculptures, they explore body images and sensuality, address relationships and memories, and question traditional as well as contemporary gender roles.

The 26 selected artworks are strong, as diverse as they are humorous, and result in a kaleidoscope of female identities that confidently confronts the gaze of our world.



Exhibition Opening

21.3. (Tue), 6:30 PM, Goethe-Gallery and Black Box Studio
in the presence of the artists Laura Eckert, Tobia König, Verena Landau, Eva Schwab and Tanja Selzer
