Guided Tour

A free tour of the exhibition Trial and Error. TRANSforming health and justice in German. Reservation is not necessary. Only the museum entrance fee must be paid.

“Genitals on Trial” discusses a forced debate about privacy and the question for whom privacy must be preserved. The idea originated from debates following lawsuits in England and Scotland, where – mostly quite young – people were sentenced to several years of imprisonment because they had not revealed their assigned birth gender and looks of their genitalia when meeting new (potential) partners. In an open call Giegold & Weiß are asking for descriptions of people’s genitalia. The call is directed to everyone. Professional court sketch artists are commissioned to visually transform these descriptions. Visitors are invited to add their own outlines to the court sketch artists’ interpretations by listening to the descriptions handed in.
