the moment

the moment is an ongoing video work.

Having a uterus and growing up as a cis female Johanna Baschke learned what women are expected to do, how they should act, look and feel. Her work illuminates the inner conflict between insecurity and control, between heteronomy and self-determination, between submissiveness and dominance, between hiding and showing-off. It looks at the challenges faced when trying to deconstruct gender norms and how these can tighten and highlight them simultaneously.
