The autumn exhibition at the Fondation Beyeler focuses on nine women artists who all have portraits and self-portraits in common. They all represent outstanding and distinguished positions within the history of modernism from 1870 to the present day.
The exhibition focuses on the artists' particular view of their own environment, as expressed in their portraits and self-portraits. In the synopsis, it is possible to experience how the artists' view of their counterparts changed between 1870 and today.
