Deutsche Börse AG, The Cube, Eschborn
The current presentation unveils outstanding works of female artists of the last decades which are part of the Art Collection Deutsche Börse. “The Female Portrait” refers to the broad range of the subject in contemporary photography and shows performative self-portraits, meticulously arranged productions and long-term studies, as well as situational snapshots. They all have in common a representation of femininity, that equally combines fragility and strength.
The exhibited artists are Diane Arbus, Jessica Backhaus, Sibylle Bergemann, Rineke Dijkstra, Angela Fensch, Evelyn Hofer, Sandra Mann, Chantal Michel, Anja Niedringhaus, Bettina Rheims and Ursula Schulz-Dornburg.
