VERENA FORMANEK | MEBODY EXHIBITION | BOISBUCHET 2018
Design defining gender roles.
Nowadays, the role allocation of women and men and the definition of feminine and masculine are being redefined in all spheres of society. This questioning of sexes partly concerns the appearance, functionality and ethics of our environment— a man-made world created for the hu-man.
Emanating from the vast design collection of Domaine de Boisbuchet, this exhibition emphasizes the gender related characteristics of our objects’ identities. The following installation of objects, images, documents and texts invites to a re-discovery of daily life, habits and bias.
This exhibition is the result of a workshop on curating, based on the
collection of Alexander von Vegesack and taking place at
Domaine de Boisbuchet from July 1st to July 7th.
Tutor: Verena Formanek
July 1st to July 7th.
