Tracking the journalistic, scientific, activist roots and the stunning imagery of the Weimar era’s feminist and queer movements, the exhibition showcases more than 20 of August Sander’s most iconic portraits of the new women, new men and new gender relations of the 1920s. Images of artists, bohemians, and intellectuals demonstrate the social shifts taking place in this era of unprecedented democratic freedom. Sander’s works are shown alongside groundbreaking gay and lesbian magazines like Die Insel, pamphlets, scientific studies, books, and other documents, providing unique insight into the trailblazing activities of the publishers, activists, and researchers, who tirelessly worked to further social change
