A decolonisation of nameless women

The current series of works "Looking Back" is an artistic examination of colonial and racist stereotypes, longings and "anonymous portraits".

Veranstaltungen in Berlin: André Werner - Der Blick zurück

In 1912, "Das Weib im Leben der Völker" by Albert Friedenthal was published in Berlin. The two volumes bring together 1149 illustrations of mostly young women from all parts of the world. The women depicted are described only by their origin and occasionally by their function. Individuals in their own right are transformed into exotic objects of desire, arranged as if they were butterflies skewered in a showcase.
