Fantastic Women

Surreal Worlds from Meret Oppenheim to Frida Kahlo

Discover some 260 impressive works by 34 international artists from over three decades of Surrealist art at SCHIRN Kunsthalle Frankfurt.

The SCHIRN is now presenting the female contribution to Surrealism for the first time in a major thematic exhibition. Female artists differed from their male colleagues above all in their reversal of perspective: They often embarked on a search for a (new) model of female identity by exploring their own reflection or by adopting different roles. Contemporary political events, literature, and non-European myths and religions are further subjects that the Surrealist women examine in their works.

With some 260 impressive paintings, works on paper, sculptures, photographs, and films by 30 international artists, the exhibition reflects a diverse spectrum in terms of both style and content. Besides famous female artists such as Louise Bourgeois, Frida Kahlo or Meret Oppenheim, visitors will be able to discover countless unknown but exciting artistic positions from over three decades of Surrealist art, such as Alice Rahon or Kay Sage.
