What A Genderful World

Gender is a hot topic: gender-free toilets, Dutch Railways with ‘Dear Travellers', and no boys or girls labels in the HEMA stores. But did you know that what we see as masculine or feminine is largely culturally determined? In a festival-like setting, dive into the world of gender and discover how this is expressed and experienced worldwide. 

On Fiji policemen wear a skirt. Pink has only been a girls’ colour since the 1950s in the West. He and she do not exist in the Turkish language. And in Mexico there is a third gender besides male and female: muxe. Experience these and more in the exhibition with objects from the museum collection, photographic art, fashion and personal stories. 

Welcome to What a Genderful World! 

The exhibition asks you seven questions. Want to know more? Click further on this page.
