Guided tour through the exhibition and the case study »Marlboro Man« with artists and curators

Limited seats, without registration.
A 3G proof is required.

The case study »Marlboro Man« interrogates embodiments of East German masculinities and looks at how they were described and (de)constructed artistically before and after 1989. In an experimental video from 1988 Kentaur [Centaur] the Erfurt artist Gabriele Stötzer (*1953, Emleben/Thüringen) turns the patriarchal tables, lustfully objectifying male bodies and sexuality with the lens of her camera. Her gaze glides over men's faces, men's bodies and the flanks of sturdy horses. Bernd Hiepe (*1955, Erfurt) in a photographic Kammerspiel [Chamber play] (1985) documents his attempt to re-enact scenes from his time in prison in a cell-like room with three young men, well-known punks from Erfurt. Even in this artificially constructed confinement, the encounters quickly escalate, even leading to scuffles. Wolfgang H Scholz’s (*1958, Dresden) Body Building observes a group of men as they work on their bodies. Using homemade devices, they model themselves into muscle machines, in defiance of GDR-state notions of socialist masculinity and body culture.
The t-shirt Pitbull Mosambik, shown in the exhibition in a photo from the private archive of Bakri Bakhit (*1974, Munich), refers to self-empowerment and self-defense strategies of black East Germans after 1990.
Thirty years later, the body of a young white man in Eric Meier’s (*1989, East Berlin) video work W lingers ambivalently between vulnerability and aggression, while Tucké Royale’s (*1984, Quedlinburg) poem MANN EY articulates a diasporic manhood reconciling his own transition with a societally transformative experience.
