Guerrilla Girls and Feminist Graphic Design
“Do women have to be naked to get into the Met. Museum?” With their legendary 1989 poster, the activist group Guerrilla Girls drew attention in New York City to the fact that although women are a popular motif in art, very few female artists are exhibited in museums, galleries, and art institutions. For more than 30 years, the internationally known collective from the USA have been dedicating themselves to humorous, enlightening, and reproachful works that uncover sexism, racism, and discrimination as well as the abuse of power and rampant corruption in the art world. For the Museum für Kunst und Gewerbe Hamburg (MK&G), the Guerrilla Girls are now developing a work that will take a critical look at the museum’s own collection. In the exhibition The F*word — Guerrilla Girls and Feminist Graphic Design at the MK&G, the collective’s posters will form the starting point for a group show encompassing some 500 works dating from 1870 to the present day.
