shows contemporary positions (paintings, sculptures, installations, photographs and video works) by 50 women artists from three generations, all of whom were born in the GDR before the fall of the Wall, some of whom were socialized in the socialist system and were confronted with the transformation in one way or another. The exhibition is accompanied by a supporting program of films and readings. A booklet with essays by curators, art historians, and female artists from the GDR complements and contextualizes the exhibition project and integrates it into the current discourse on the consequences of reunification for female artists from the GDR. The exhibition is also intended as a reaction to and a counter-design to the previous, highly acclaimed exhibitions of recent years, which were dedicated to art and artists from the GDR. In these overview exhibitions, for example, women artists were represented by only 14% (MdbK Leipzig) or 18% (Gropius Bau). Works by women artists from the GDR continue to appear rarely in contemporary exhibitions. This problem is often overlooked from a West German perspective. We are therefore pleased to realize for the first time a comprehensive exhibition project in Germany, dedicated exclusively to still living and contemporary women artists from the GDR.
