Combining silkscreen and text works, the artist explores questions about the meaning of the body and clothing in relation to sexuality and the rebellion and revolt against normative concepts and attributions.

About

In her solo exhibition AUFBEGEHREN, Magda Korsinsky explores how patriarchal and sexist with racist, ableist,
lookist and classist structures impact the sexuality of individuals affected by the aforementioned structures.
Combining silkscreen and text works, the artist explores questions about the meaning of the body and clothing in
relation to sexuality and the rebellion and revolt against normative concepts and attributions.
The starting point is the artist’s extensive research. In her interviews with those affected by multiple forms of
discrimination, experiences with power structures and dynamics as well as strategies of resistance and empowerment
come to the fore.
The exhibition shows interview excerpts as well as silkscreen prints of clothing of the interviewed persons, which
have been alienated by the silkscreen technique: Experiences and stories materialize in clothing. At the same time,
the materiality of the print - not as an image of the garments, but as a displacement standing on its own - testifies to
individual and collective identities and forms of refusal. The combination of texts and prints creates personal portraits
that come together as a kind of wall collage. As a plural and intersectional overall narrative, this bears witness to
structural inequalities and social stigmatization as well as to self-empowerment and personal processes of
emancipation.
