20 Darlings – Audience Picks from the SMU Archives

2. December 2020 – 4. January 2021

From 100 Objects to 20 Darlings: on October 26, the exhibition “100 Objects”, featuring our biggest queer treasures selected by chief archivist Peter Rehberg and board member Ben Miller, came to an end. However, we can’t quite say goodbye yet and now want to showcase the audience’s 20 favorite objects – meaning your favorite objects. The show is called “20 Darlings” and will run from December 2, 2020, to January 4, 2021. Around 300 votes have been cast. Featured artists include Jürgen Wittdorf, Lena Rosa Händle, Krista Beinstein, Herbert Tobias, Jürgen Baldiga, Michèle Meyer and Kate Millet.
