Marianne Wex
“Female” and “Male” Body Language as a Result of Patriarchal Structures
(“Weibliche” und “männliche” Körpersprache als Folge patriarchalischer Machtverhältnisse)
Badischer Kunstverein presents Marianne Wex in her first comprehensive solo exhibition in Germany since the 1970s. From 1972 to 1977 Wex photographed people and their body language on the streets of Hamburg and subsequently classified her photos into different categories. She juxtaposed women and men according to the specific positioning of arms and legs, feet, knees, elbows, hands, shoulders, and heads.
