In this Gallery Talk, Lieke Hettinga will take the museum visitors on a tour through the permanent exhibited collection, Stedelijk BASE. Through an in-depth exploration of a selection of works, Lieke will shed light on the role of art in addressing issues of ‘in/equality’ and ‘difference’. Together, with the visitors, the tour will examine feminist aesthetic practices and their politics of representation. Informed by feminist and queer theory, Lieke will reflect on the social significance of feminism in art history and contemporary politics.

This Gallery Talk is part of the public program of MOED: Museum of Equality and Difference.
