Girls/Museum takes the viewer through the historical art collection of the MdbK/Museum of Fine Art Leipzig, guided by the expertise and insights of a group of girls, ages 7 to 19. Moving from artwork to artwork, century to century, the girls tell us what they see. Art is typically the reserve of anointed experts and girls rarely take or are given a central and unfettered place to speak from. From imaginative leaps of storytelling to curt pronouncements, from gender fluidity to power, inequality, precarity and war, Girls/Museum, in its quiet way, calls for questioning basic assumptions of what and who we value.
