Are we free from prejudice? Are we arguing without reservation? Can one be seen as a reflected, educated man freed from stereotypes? In art, it should be about quality, inspiration and creativity. Nevertheless, it is noticeable that women are often underrepresented in the art world. Talent, creativity and inspiration should be decisive for the success and market value of artists. The exhibition ABSTRAKT XX / XY should be a sign of this matter: the art is at the center, the names of the artists are hidden and do not allow any conclusion to the person behind them. Subconscious, stereotypical associations to the works are thus speculation for the viewer, and the pure artistic form of expression can be absorbed and analyzed without the influence of socially defined stereotypes.The short look at the name plate and hasty conclusions are not possible at first - but for quite curious the reverse can be found on the back of the price tags.Whether there is surprise or confirmation - the special thing is that you have been thinking about art at an unprejudiced level. Of course, a work is never to be separated from artist or artist, but for a first impression one should not be guided by prejudices, but only the quality evaluate.
