Katharina Arndt & Zuzana Svatik: DIVAS AFTER WORK
The exhibition DIVAS AFTER WORK will present Zuzana Svatik's ceramic works and Katharina Arndt's paintings. In their work, both authors playfully work with archetypes of femininity in pop culture. The exhibition explores two perspectives, a multi-layered and contradictory idea of a woman, thus creating tension in the white cube space of the Station Gallery.

Both Arndt and Svatik will present a stimulating dialogue about power dynamics and performative aspects of femininity. With a flair for pop culture, they fill questions of identity in the postmodern, digital age with humor and playfulness.
