Due to the dynamic spread of the Corona virus the Bavarian government decided that the museum is initially closed from March 14th to April 19th, 2020.
We kindly ask for your understanding.
With Uterusland, a large-scale installation by Raphaela Vogel recently acquired by the Museumsinitiative, we welcome one of today’s fastest-rising artists. In the accompanying video work, Vogel stages her own birth – filmed in a swimming pool in her native city of Nuremberg, where she also studied. Together with a larger-than-life anatomical model of a female breast and the milk-like polyurethane cast of a life-size horse figure, she formulates questions concerning the construction of gender and emancipated artistic production. For Vogel, the latter is always linked to an unsparing self-representation that identifies the pressure of the creative urge as both an affliction and a force.
