The exhibition Worin unsere Stärke besteht (“Where our strength lies”), curated by artist Andrea Pichl, shows the work of fifty women artists from three different generations who were born in the GDR.

Working with different media and diverse genres, the artists investigate complex themes, producing works that defy categorisation, and that cannot be reduced to a single aesthetic or subject. The exhibition does not address any narrative relating to the GDR, nor does it historicise art from the GDR. Rather, it opens out to artists’ biographies, approaching the question of how lived experience influences artistic thematic preoccupations. A small number of the works exhibited were produced during the GDR period.
