The exhibition Female Intervention is devoted to the topic of feminism and offers an occasion to discuss the status of women in our society, as well as in the art-system, by bringing together a variety of artistic positions. The focus lies on female/feminist artist collectives, who through their collaborative format sound out new possibilities and transgress borders perhaps more easily than independently acting individuals. Female Intervention presents works of various media (performance, video, photography, painting, sculpture, and installation) that examine the roles ascribed to women in a critical and humorous way, thereby creating awareness for discrimination, deconstructing the art system, or widening the male-dominated historiography by a female perspective. In the tradition of the Guerrilla Girls, the exhibited collectives act in a playful and witty manner. This allows for a light-footed approach to a topic that in times of gender studies is still a subject of unease and prejudice. The question of emancipation is currently highly topical at Humboldt University: In parallel with the show, the first female professor of science, the nuclear physicist Lise Meitner (1878–1968), will be honored with a sculpture in the university’s forecourt.
