hysterisch oder Weichei

interactive installation in public space, wood, metal, spray paint, various sized, since 2018

Common gender-stereotypes in the form of oversized
“labels”. Passerbys can wear them to explore those stereotypes.

– how does this label make me feel?
– which labels are “female”, which “male”? Do I agree?
– can I own this label and thereby taking away its negative influence over me?

Labels like hysterisch, empfindlich, Heulsuse, Weichei and weint nicht put a focus on gender-stereotypes surrounding emotionality.

The pop-aestethics as well as playful interactivity make the work accessible to audiences in public space.
