Gender

Gender is everywhere. In the head, in the body, in the office, in bed, in politics and at the beginning of life: it is a boy or it is a girl. The Stapferhaus is dedicating this exhibition (Geschlecht) to this theme. How does gender come into being, what makes us a woman or a man?  The multifaceted world of biology (cells, chromosomes and hormones), culture and society, education, upbringing and role models, history and present, work, power and hierarchy, ideals of beauty and sexuality. The exhibition invites visitors to engage with the theme on a personal and social level
