Battle of the Sexes. Franz von Stuck to Frida Kahlo illuminates the artistic exploration of gender roles and gender relations from the mid-19th century to the end of the Second World War. Featuring over 150 works, the exhibition reveals just how controversial both male and female modern artists were in their reaction towards the construction of gender identities and bears witness to the ways they used painting, sculpture, graphic art, photography and film to tackle stereotypes and role models.
