Virtual exhibition opening: Technology#Female#Logical

May 6, 2020

On Saturday 9 May 2020 the Museum of Women’s Culture Regional-International is virtually opening the exhibition “Technology#Female#Logical. Women and technology in the Nuremberg metropolitan area.”

The virtual exhibition opening takes place at 11:00 on  instagramfacebookyoutube and twitter.

This is a very relevant topic as girls and young women are increasingly encouraged to turn to an education in engineering and technology. Our exhibition will feature distinguished female pioneers from the metropolitan region as well as women who currently hold positions in science, technology, engineering, mathematics (STEM) and technical trade.

The stories and achievements of these women will be told through portraits, objects and the arts, in the hopes of inspiring young women to pursue careers in STEM or skilled trade. The exhibit will include interactive, experimental components, and pertinent workshops for girls. We are going to challenge the notion that men are developers of technology while women are primarily consumers of it.

For the first time, the museum will collaborate with the technology & journalism program at the Technical University of Nuremberg (Prof. Dr. Beatrice Dernbach), and the communications department at the University of Bamberg (Dr. Kristina Wied). During the winter semester of 2019/2020, students of both schools will conduct interviews and lend their support in our advertising efforts.
