REGENERART aims to promote art and creativity as innovative tools to increase the competences of secondary school teachers and students to re-think gender roles and stereotypes towards a more equal and inclusive society, free of gender-based violence against women and discriminations.

Exhibition: The Second Glance (Germany)

The Bode Museum Berlin is launching the exhibition series The Second Glance, One of the Second Glances, co-produced with the organisation Frauentreff Olga, analyses traditional gender roles and challenges functions ascribed to women in society. They created 6 themed paths through their permanent collection.

To this day, art history continues to be framed by a male perspective, and this perspective also defines the art-historical canon. The influence and histories of women were long ignored in Western museums. The invisibility of women continues to be a common feature of virtually all museums and collections of the so-called “Old Masters”.The overarching goal of this exhibition is to expand the traditional museum discourse to incorporate some of the narratives, contributions and achievements of historical and contemporary women. To this end, we have put together six paths through the Bode-Museum which open up new perspectives on the artworks, while also suggesting new avenues for future research in the field:

  • Women Who Made History
  • Women in Biblical and Christian Narratives
  • Women in Greco-Roman Mythology
  • Men and Gender Equality
  • The (Missing)Women Artists
  • The View From the 21st Century

You can find useful material, as a Bibliography, Terminology, a Timeline of the history of gender equality and further online sources, as well. More information and a downloadable pdf-catatalogue are available on the website of the Bode Museum.

Exhibition: Portrait of a Lady (Belgium)

Through a series of artworks, Portrait of a Lady illustrates the various forms of representation of women from prehistoric times to today, as well as the more specific journeys of a few exceptional women. Grouping a selection of ancient and contemporary pieces, the exhibition will establish a dialogue between different cultures and civilizations from the East and the West.

This project aims to honour the portraits of both renowned and unknown women from long ago to today. In addition to historical figures, the artworks convey images of Greece and Africa, with insights into the stories of the Queen of Sheba and Dido, Queen of Carthage. From the personification of fertility to the representations of courtesans and empresses, the exhibition endeavours to shed light on the different views and interpretations of women through the ages.

Exhibition: Is it for a boy or a girl… !? (Belgium)

The Little Museum is a space for learning where exhibits are displayed at a child’s eye level. Here children can discover pieces from the BPS22 col lection, selected according to current themes. This space invites a dialogue between children and the works, but also between generations.

The new exhibition at the Little Museum addresses the issue of gender and the associated stereotypes. Through a selection of works, the subject is approached from the angle of leisure, work, clothing style or further questions the difference between sex and gender.

We are declared as a boy or a girl at birth. Is that why little girls should be surrounded by pink and glitter and little boys by blue or dark colours? Why is it that dolls are more commonly offered to girls and cars to boys in toy catalogues and shops? And when girls and boys go to school together later, do they play the same games? Do they play the same sports? Do they want to work in the same professions? Is it true that girls are more gentle and boys fight more? ... So many questions have been raised for years and still remain current!
