An exhibition called Die Unsichtbare (The Invisible), highlighting the influence of women, wants to modify or even transform the way women’s contribution to the historical development of Nuremberg is seen and celebrated.
From the 1st to 21st of October, Nuremberg’s city centre will become a public exhibition space. Twenty uniquely designed poster motifs of 20 women, all who led eventful lives and shaped the history of Nuremberg, will be on display on advertising boards around the city. For each of the persons featured, a possible memorial location is suggested. The project hopes to initiate a city-wide societal discourse about diversity, the landscape of remembrance, and promote the further diversification of narratives about the city.
Visitors to this large-scale art exhibition have much more to experience than simply looking at the photo motifs. All the posters have a QR code, leading to a website detailing biographical information about the selected person. The artist and photographer Claudia Holzinger created the graphics and visuals for the posters. Raphael Unger and Alexander Mrohs worked together to create 3D visualisations for monuments in their proposed locations.
Besides the city-wide exhibition, there is an accompanying programme of two guided city tours and a participatory workshop where there will be in-depth handling of the themes involved in this inspiring project. A finissage on the 21st October will round off the event.
The city walks, led by Nuremberg historian Nadja Bennewitz, are open to the public free of charge. They will take place on two dates. Part I on Saturday 2nd October from 3pm and Part II on Friday 8th October from 5pm. The number of participants is currently limited to 15 persons per tour. Prior registration by email is strongly advised at: email@example.com
The participatory workshop The Visible, in cooperation with the Nuremberg State Theatre, and led by theatre director and project artist Tina Geißinger will take place on Sunday 24th October from 1pm. Participation is limited to 20 people, registration by email: firstname.lastname@example.org
The exhibition will close with a small (due to the current Corona regulations) finissage on the 21st October in the gallery of artist Bogi Nagy at Schlehengasse 15, 90402 Nuremberg.
