Journey Through A Body
/

Overview

The exhibition Journey Through A Body explores perceptions and understandings of the body in the context of gender identities and self-identification. In the works of six young artists, who examine the human body and its issues of identity from diverse, international perspectives, fascinating questions about gender and concepts of identity are discussed in very different ways and in a variety of media. The exhibition is curated by Gregor Jansen and Alicia Holthausen, curatorial assistance: Juliane Hoffmanns. Journey Through A Body is the name of a 1981 LP by the industrial music pioneers Throbbing Gristle, which was released in Germany in April 1982 as the first record on the label Walter Ulbricht Schallfolien. It deals with their early journey and the dismal realities of medicine and the psyche and thus serves as the exhibition title and the basis for the search for the self.
