LEADING LADIES 
KENNEDY - REAGAN - CLINTON - OBAMA

October 12, 2018 - February 24, 2019 

With over 70 photographs by renowned artists such as Steve Schapiro, Elliott Erwitt, Mark Shaw, Martin Schoeller and Pete Souza, the exhibition 
»Leading Ladies« aims to take a closer look at this central player.

The exhibition focuses on four former First Ladies of the United States: Jacqueline Kennedy, Nancy Reagan, Hillary Clinton and Michelle Obama. All four women have interpreted the office differently and enriched it with their own accents — defining the way we perceive the office of the First Lady today.

 
The exhibition also poses further questions regarding women’s roles in society as the public image of the First Lady has always been a balancing act between the traditional role of the wife and mother and the image of the emancipated political agent who follows her own ambitions. This enthralling ambivalence is addressed in the four aspects that structure the exhibition: companion, representative, campaigner and political player.
