Center for Contemporary Art, First floor
Opening: Thursday 9.2.2023, 7 p.m.
Welcome: Frank Bewig, District City Councillor
Introduction: Ralf F. Hartmann, Head of the Cultural Office
SKIN – Membrane, Organ, Archive presents works by women artists based in Berlin who explore the thematic complexity of skin. This makes the interweaving of e.g. sexism, racism, classism, ageism visible, bears witness to individual and collective archiving practices and, as a sensual, resistant and at the same time vulnerable organ, becomes the starting point for artistic analysis. In this way, the exhibition counters the male-dominated location — the Citadel — with feminist counter-narratives. Accompanying events include a book launch, lectures, artist talks, guided tours, film presentations and performances.
With the kind support of the district development funds of the Senate Department for Culture and Europe
