Things. A history of women in 100 objects
There are countless ways to tell a story of women, this one does it through objects.
There are countless ways to tell a story of women, this one does it through objects. A hundred objects of everyday life, fashion, medicine, art, quiet and loud objects, those that testify to women's desire for freedom and rebellion, but also those that stand for the myths and norms that have always been used to keep them down. Annabelle Hirsch creates a cosmos of women and their things. We encounter an ancient Amazon doll, a Lilith amulet, Hildegard von Bingen's nun's crown, Venetian stilt shoes, a bidet, a hunger strike medal, a plate by Vanessa Bell, the cotton bag of an American slave, a brooch by Hannah Arendt, a "100-hour kilometer coat," a Tupperware box, and much more.
