Women’s Museums Worldwide (2009-2011)

As part of the second international conference of women’s museum in Bonn in 2009, the first common exhibition of women’s museums worldwide opened. The exhibition included Idols – Role Models – Heroines from the home-countries of the 28 participating museums. It showed women who were pioneers or revolutionaries, women in politics, science and art or even the founders of the museums. Apart from these portraits of women, the exhibition also presented the different women’s museums, their concept, their foundation history, organisation and structure. This way, the diversity of the museums as well as their links were mapped out. This was not only documentation, but a multimedia-based, colourful, fascinating and interactive celebration of the museums.
