International Artists Address the Boundaries of Gender, curatorship and exhibition design
In the group of works in the exhibition, the artists "visit" the other sex. They challenge or cross the customary, traditional lines of gender affiliation: What a woman is supposed to do, or how a man should behave, and what the dress code or body language befitting each sex are. They employ these to question the boundaries of sexual definition, whether such lines truly exist and where they are drawn.
Gender boundaries may not be considered a priority when compared to other pressing existential concerns. Nevertheless, this issue touches upon questions of morality, religion and law, which have social and cultural implications on our everyday life. This exhibition is held as part of the 4th and 5th of May Commemoration events in Amsterdam under a common goal: to explore the sense of the slogan a society aspiring for freedom and tolerance and, especially, to find out what it means in times of social and political upheaval as we currently experience in our immediate surrounding.
