The exhibition LESBIAN VISIONS brings into view artistic positions by queer FLTI* (females, lesbians, trans, inter) from over 100 years and displays works by more than 30 artists across six generations. As part of the annual theme ”Year of the Women*” the Schwules Museum undertakes a first attempt to acknowledge these artists and their work. We present a “hidden museum” of queer art from a perspective beyond hegemonic masculinity: a milestone not only for the “Gay” Museum.
The exhibition conceptualizes a utopian and melancholic gallery that follows the tracks of lesbian forms of pleasure and experience as well as lesbian identity constructions and lifestyles. In this context, we understand and recognize the term “lesbian” in its broadest sense, which is to say that desire and gender can be fluid.
The exhibition features artwork of:
Lou Albert-Lazard, Ursula Bierther, Gisela Breitling, Kerstin Drechsel, Martina Minette Dreier, Leonor Fini, Yori Gagarim, Susu Grunenberg, Nilbar Güreş, Grit Hachmeister, Renate Hampke, Lena Rosa Händle, Corinna Harl, Risk Hazekamp, Doli Hilbert, Hannah Höch, Kerstin Honeit, Ingrid Kerma, Evelyn Kuwertz, Lotte Laserstein, Kate Millett, Noemi Yoko Molitor, Gerda Rotermund, Ebba Sakel, Gertrude Sandmann, Ceren Saner, Lene Schneider-Kainer, Sarah Schumann, Simon & Simone, Renée Sintenis, Milly Steger, Erika Stürmer-Alex, Anja Weber, Augusta von Zitzewitz.
