Vernissage: November 7, 7pm. Free entry
Join us for the opening of the new exhibition TransTrans: Transatlantic Transgender History. Bringing to light stunning, never-before published photographs and letters, the exhibition TransTrans explores a transatlantic network of individuals from the early twentieth century through the 1960s who profoundly shaped emerging trans histories. Exchanging letters and photographs among themselves, these individuals created new communities in private, but they also sought to educate doctors and the public by submitting their photographs and stories for publication in medical journals and popular magazines.
The curators will be present: Alex Bakker, Rainer Herrn, Michael Thomas Taylor, and Annette F. Timm
The exhibition is funded by the Berlin Senate Department for Culture and Europe
Exhibition: November 8 2019 to March 2 2020
