The very successful ‘Naked Men’ exhibition by the Vienna Leopold Museum moved on to the Musée d’Orsay Paris. With different objects, but the same focus on the image of the naked man in art. Like the Vienna exhibition it covers the time period from 1800 to the present and shows objects from the fields of painting, sculpture, graphics and photography. From the Leopold Collection Vienna works by Egon Schiele, Richard Gerstl, Koloman Moser and Anton Kolig were sent to Paris.
Masculine / Masculine. The Nude Man in Art from 1800 to the Present Day

The music business seems to be full with female artists, but what about their representation, the women behind the scences and the female audience? Is the only way to global success pulling off the glamorous diva or the sexy style icon? And what about Lady Gaga and Madonna, do they really break the rules or do the stay within the limits of a female gender performance? And what about the Riot Grrrls and Beth Ditto, are they stereotyped as freaks or still considered women?
Lots of questions. Possible answers can be found in this exciting exhibition ‘ShePOP – Women. Power.Music’ at the rock’n’popmuseum in Gronau/Germany.
