I CURATE

Since 2015, Britta Adler has been curating group exhibitions as a freelancer. Often on a larger scale. In addition to artistic quality, the diversity of artists and their works is important to her. She passionately brings socially relevant themes into an artistic discourse.  The exhibitions "bitch MATERial" & "bOObs" (co-curated with Saralisa Volm) were shown in Berlin and Hamburg and met with great response in the press. The exhibition series was recently awarded the first prize of the Green Party's "Hatun Sürücü" Women's Prize. For innovative topics at the edge of the taboo renowned artists could always can be won over.

The artists behind bOObs think it is time to free the breast and take it for what it is: part of the female body, identification marker and projection surface that is allowed to hang, stand, sit and fall out of the blouse everywhere.

Artists u.a.:
Pipilotti Rist, Candice Breitz, Mathilde ter Heijne, Almagul Menlybaeva, Ruprecht von Kaufmann, Tracey Snelling,  Lara Schnitger

bitch MATERial stands for the powerful, contemporary and above all diverse form of mother identity. The exhibition is accompanied by an extensive programme: Panel discussions, PechaKucha event and men's regulars' table on the topic of mother images, family and gender in the art market. With over 30 international artists.

bitch MATERial celebrates the mother as creator. Mothers create children, art, careers and controversies. It is about the diversity of mother images. Is a mother allowed to make porn? How sexy or how well-behaved can mothers be these days? Is it permissible to do without children? And how much mother is there in a man?

A study commissioned by the BBK Studie clearly showed that women are nowhere near as successful in the art world as their male counterparts. The at least equal number of female art school graduates are contrasted by a far smaller percentage of female artists who show and sell in galleries and at art fairs, let alone in museums.  We are still far from "gender equality" (here the download detailed results of the bbk study).  The big question is: How do we deal with this? And how do we want to change it!
