Devoted to the female artists in the collection, this exhibition, curated by the cultural critic Elisabeth Bronfen, offers an opportunity to revisit the art­ historical canon. Taking as its starting point the collector Andreas Züst’s permanent loan, as well as other holdings, the exhibition sheds light on the relationship between visual art and sexual difference in modern and post­modern art.

Exposing points of connection be­tween the generations, this show renders visible the impact of classic modernism on late twentieth century female artists. These works from the 1970s to the 1990s, in turn, also draw into focus the feminist legacy  of the collection of the Aargauer Kunsthaus.

Artists: Ina Barfuss, Binia Bill, Heidi Bucher, Miriam Cahn, Marianne Eigenheer, Karin Freisager, Gabrielle Grässle, Margrit Grenadier, Dorothy Ianone, Leiko Ikemura, Ella Lanz, Manon, Donatella Maranta, Marianne Müller, Meret Oppenheim, Klaudia Schifferle, Sonia Sekula, Doris Stauffer, Sophie Taeuber-Arp, Hannah Villiger, Ilse Weber.
