How can a political or social movement create so many positive changes, while simultaneously developing negative connotations? Such is the paradox of feminism. The exhibition Cooling out: on the paradox of feminism examines the influences of media, education and existing social structures on the constitution of a gender identity through works of contemporary female and male artists

Cooling Out is curated by Sabine Schaschl-Cooper, Bettina Steinbrügge and René Zechlin and will be presented in parallel at the three participating institutions.

Participating Artists: 3 Hamburger Frauen (DE), Shannon Bool (CA/DE), Cabello/Carceller (ES), Esra Ersen (TR), Dani Gal (IL/DE), Andrea Geyer/Sharon Hayes (DE/US), Jaki Irvine (IRL), Katrin Mayer (DE), Josephine Meckseper (DE/US), Michael a Meise (DE), Elodie Pong (CH), Aurora Reinhard (FIN), Una Quigley (IRL), Pernille Kapper Williams (DK/DE).
