"WOMEN POWER" art workshop

Register now for Sabine Amelung's art workshop "WOMEN POWER" at the BikiniARTmuseum!

Dear Sirs,

Aloha dear BAM fans,

Without those women who fought for their right to swim and thus for adequate swimwear in the first three decades of the 20th century, there would be no swimwear. WomenPower paved the way for the next generations of women and laid one of the foundations for the growing self-determination of women.

Even in our time, WomenPower is changing world history: modern women who neither feel they belong to a party nor want to follow a mainstream, nor do they intend to create fashions, defy prohibitions and rules because they no longer want to endure injustice and disregard, because they cannot help it, because an inner urge to express themselves about their actions, about their presence, about publications and media effectiveness strengthens them in precisely those places where social wounds gape. The creativity that develops from this anger and from this courage calls for participation, for responsible action.

In this art workshop we want to make it equal to these women, we take the personal occasion of these strong women as a theme, in order to gain creative access and thus a position on current issues of women's self-determination and responsible action. The offer is aimed at people who would like to learn more about the exciting history of FrauenPower over decades and who would like to implement this through the use of visual means such as drawing, painting, collage and cutout.
