Duration of the exhibtion 21. – 29. April 2018

The exhibition Rumpy Bees & Pumpy Blooms focuses on sexuality and gender. Generations and locations shape images of sexuality. Sexuality as the essence of human life, points far beyond the private sphere. Sexuality impacts both on our personal lives and politics. Each and every one of us needs a position in regard to questions of gender, sexual identity, order, censorship, freedom and power, and to renegotiate these positions over the course of our lives.

Art allows us to portray realities of life and subjective practices, to give space to fantasies and to bring them into reality. The works presented in the group exhibition combine different ideas of sexual meaning into a field of new emotional, political and historical angles.
