“Reframing Worlds” is an exhibition that brings together work by Berlin artists dealing with the lives and works of a diverse group of women including Gertrude Bell, Agatha Christie, Maria Mandessi Bell Diop, Mia May, Sayyida Salme Princess of Oman and Zanzibar alias Emily Ruete, and Ida Pfeiffer.
Colonialist influenced mindsets, imagery, and categories of knowledge that are still in effect today are the departure points; their historic structures are to be laid bare and examined. The artists follow experiences of oppression, resistance, and migration in their research, which encompasses travel reports, life stories, plant worlds, photographs and other objects. They investigate where and in what ways traces are still visible, and critically discuss ways to deal with archives and archival material today as well as their own roles as knowledge producers.

The exhibition not only reveals gaps in the historiography, but also challenges the kind of knowledge that was produced in the context of the colonial projects and circulated Europe. Who produces knowledge about the world and in which way? How do the complex intersections between racism and sexism continue to affect us, and how can we imagine and practise feminism transculturally and in solidarity?
