In the 1990s, when Ingvild Goetz began to systematically collect media art, the theoretical basis for gender studies was being established. These have since become familiar to us through comparative literature, cultural studies and related disciplines. The works Goetz added to her collection of media-art reflect keen interest in these issues at the time.

The selected films date from mid 1970s and later. With their female protagonists, they depict role models and thus a certain understanding of femininity; or explicitly represent a feminist position. Including works by Chantal Akerman, Andrea Bowers, Rineke Dijkstra, Cheryl Donegan, Mona Hatoum, Lucy McKenzie & Paulina Olowska, Tracey Moffatt, Ulrike Ottinger, Rosemarie Trockel, Ryan Trecartin and TJ Wilcox, the exhibition provides an overview of the development of feminist discourse since the 1970s.
