Women and Gender Diversity in Weimar Cinema (1918 – 1933)
Exhibition at the DFF – Deutsches Filminstitut & Filmmuseum, March 29 to November 12, 2023.
Bobbed hairstyles, airy chiffon dresses, extravagant shoe creations, and the freedom to wear long pants at last – even at first glance, the changes that the 1920s brought for women were tremendous. One of the most important of these was the increase in women’s employment, who therefore became more and more present in everyday social life. This can also be seen in the cinema of the time. Women working in the film industry of the Weimar Republic are the subject of the exhibition WEIMAR WEIBLICH (literally Female Weimar), which at the same time investigates how cinema deals with gender roles and relations in general.
