Mercury Rising (guided tour in German)

19. November 2021 16:00

Guided tour

A free guided tour through the “Mercury Rising – Inter* Hermstory[ies] Now and Then” exhibition with curator Luan Pertl in German language.

SMU’s first inter* focused exhibition is dedicated to the past and present of inter* movement(s) in activism, society, art and culture. It explores fragmentary universes and utopias on the topic of intersex issues which, until now has often been filtered and handed down through the gaze of dyadic people, or still is.

The multimedia wall collage by Ins A Kromminga and Ev Blaine Matthigack searches for traces of ancestors and origins of intersex movement(s) and associatively relates positions of inter* artists.  In an installative space station by the duo Giegold & Weiß, the voices of intersex activists become audible and visible and an intersex utopia is created.
