Women in art
Würth Collection

At the End of February until 17 October 2021

! Due to the extension of the lockdown until at least the end of February, the exhibition can unfortunately not be opened as planned on Friday, January 22 !

Housewife, mother, sex symbol – the list of clichés related to female roles is long. But artists, male and female, have always found interesting and often surprising ways of dealing with it, questioning it, re-interpreting it. The works in this exhibition oscillate between a preoccupation with identity as a woman and an artist, and the ascriptions the world makes to women. In brief: Who am I and who am I supposed to be? After all, when it comes to images of women in both senses, the question that always arises is: Who is portraying whom and how? For example, the link between painter and model is a prototypical response to this, mainly by male artists. Today, female artists, but some of their fellow male artists too, seek ways to escape directing this classical and much criticised gaze on the relationship.

Artists in the exhibition:
Siegfried Anzinger, Stephan Balkenhol, Fernando Botero, Daniele Buetti, George Grosz, Dieter Hacker, Beate Hamalwa, Martha Haufiku, Xenia Hausner, Sabine Hoffmann, Alfred Hrdlicka, Romane Holderried Kaesdorf, Alex Katz, Carlos Mérida, Henry Moore, Othilia Mungoba, Pablo Picasso, Arnulf Rainer, Adolfo Riestra, Donna Stolz, Norbert Tadeusz, Rosemarie Trockel, Tomi Ungerer, Gabriel Vormstein, Niki de Saint Phalle u. a.
