The exhibition presents works by women artists based in Berlin who explore the thematic complexity of skin.

The exhibition makes the interweaving of e.g. sexism, racism, classism, ageism visible, bears witness to individual and collective archiving practices and, as a sensual, resistant and at the same time vulnerable organ, becomes the starting point for artistic analysis. In this way, the exhibition counters the male-dominated location — the Citadel — with feminist counter-narratives. Accompanying events include a book launch, lectures, artist talks, guided tours, film presentations and performances.

With works by Tina Bara, Mehtap Baydu, Anguezomo Mba Bikoro, Anna Bromley, Yvon Chabrowski, Alba D’Urbano, Manja Ebert, Yishay Garbasz, Ina Geißler, Andrea Golla, Harriet Groß, Isabel Kerkermeier, Rachel Kohn, Verena Kyselka, Julia Lübbecke, Loredana Nemes, Dorothea Nold, Margherita Pevere, Moran Sanderovich, Franziska Schaum, Zuzanna Schmukalla, Moran Shavit, Zuzanna Skiba, Anja Sonnenburg, Marianne Stoll, Ivonne Thein, Sophie Utikal, Gisela Weimann.
