Gender Check

Femininity and Masculinity in the Art of Eastern Europe OP


Gender Check is the first comprehensive exhibition featuring art from Eastern Europe since the 1960s based on the theme of gender roles.

20 years after the fall of the Berlin Wall, the curator Bojana Pejić, along with a team of experts from 24 different countries, has put together a selection of over 400 works including paintings, sculpture, installations, photography, posters, films and videos.

With over 200 artists, the exhibition paints an exceptionally diverse picture of a chapter in art history that until recently had been largely unknown and that could also act as an important addition to contemporary gender discourse.

Published on the occasion of the exhibition in 2009/10 at Museum Moderner Kunst Stiftung Ludwig, Vienna, and at Zacheta National Gallery of Art, Warsaw.
