The binary gender system – as we know it – hasn’t existed forever and most certainly not everywhere in the world, but since its establishment in Western societies, it has categorized us into man and woman and thus assigned us certain roles in society to set in motion unprecedented discrimination and ex-
ploitation of women* worldwide.
Since then, not a few exhibitions have dedicated themselves to ex-
ploring what it means to be a woman*. However, contrary to previous explo-
rations of the term “woman”, our society has reached a point where the binary gender system is challenged and broken into pieces.
Our exhibition represents precisely that: 10 artists. 10 different works
but one thing in common. We are not MEN, but WOMEN*. Our experiences
are vast and diverse but ultimately shaped by being categorized as women or as “not men”. This exhibition offers our very different perspectives and a platform for much-needed dialogue to foster learning, understanding, and a
celebration of each other. Only this way, we can form a union strong enough to revolutionize this system that brings about misery for so many of us.
