The exhi­bi­ti­on will dis­play their first col­la­bo­ra­ti­ve work. It con­nects various nar­ra­ti­ves and points of inte­rest, such as their enga­ge­ment with films by (fema­le) direc­tors of the 1960’s and 70’s, as well as the ques­ti­on of how mytho­lo­gi­cal women and their depic­tion are still pre­sent in our cur­rent socie­ty, both lin­gu­is­ti­cal­ly as well as ideo­lo­gi­cal­ly, sub­t­le or overtly as references.

The video col­la­ge intert­wi­nes images, sounds and nar­ra­ti­ves, such as sequen­ces that were filmed during the work with the “Friends of Women Foun­da­ti­on” orga­niz­a­ti­on in Thai­land to con­nect the­se with images of the Düs­sel­dorf copy of the sculp­tu­re of Per­seus hol­ding the head of Medusa.

The artists focus on nar­ra­ti­ves part­ly for­got­ten that still influ­ence assump­ti­ons in today’s socie­ty and hope to redu­ce their impact.
