Catalogue to the exhibition „Hälfte des Himmels“
Isn’t it risky to raise the issue of women’s daily lives in a male world with a travelling exhibition while more than 2 billion women live on this globe who belong to different countries, nations, continents, ethnic origins and religions? What do women have in common? What separates and what connects them? What makes the daily lives of women possible and what makes them impossible in a male dominated society? Which ideas, concepts of life and experiences are characteristic for their lives? The exhibition gives an overview of cartoons and drawings by international artists dealing with the daily lives of women in a male dominated society.
