works on gender and identity is a curatorial project dealing with gender issues and the notion of identity. It aims to establish an independent framework for these topics in the art system. Based in Bremen, it programmatically looks for national and international critical positions. In terms of art-specific goals, it aims to reflect the plurality of forms and approaches in contemporary art. In order to guarantee the independence of the project, works on gender and identity cooperates with different institutions in Northern Germany. Exhibition publications are understood as an integral part of the project as they fulfill the task of a theoretical reflection on the matter in question. As a long-term project, they contribute to raising public awareness and theoretical reflection on the issue in a given context and time frame.
