Boobs. Shifting the gaze

Guided tour
8/3 2024 5 pm

On Feminist Fight Day, during a guided tour of the exhibition Darker, Lighter, Puffy, Flat, we want to talk about breasts, because regardless of all our personal opinions and experiences: we all have them.

The guided tour is free with an exhibition ticket and will be held in German.

We kindly ask you to register in advance at or directly at the cash desk in Kunsthalle Wien Museumsquartier. The number of participants is limited.

The group exhibition Darker, Lighter, Puffy, Flat features works, including several new commissions, by international artists who reflect on the manifold meanings of breasts, not only in art history but in society and culture at large. The works inhabit a space of tensions created by the many contradictory – sometimes hypocritical – but also sensual and playful views on breasts.

Why do we still need to talk about breasts, and why are they still a source of controversy and debate?
