Deborah Schmidt is part of #TheGalleryProject. #TheGalleryProject includes artworks from 47 artists from 27 different countries. Each work reflects a unique perspective and as a whole, the exhibition series refuses to present a standardized narrative. Rather, it becomes clear that being queer means something different to each artist, whether sexually, politically, or aesthetically.

Each artist represented in the exhibition has developed their own strategies for coping with their lived realities and addressing (or not addressing) them in their art. The works displays sex, fragility, anger, courage, hope, nihilism, strength, fear, and beauty.

About the artwork:

The focus of my painting is movement and queer-feminist body politics.

Bodies are products of social norms, inherent in power and hierarchies, economic relations, body politics. The aim of my work is the attempt to uncover processes of constructing gender and sexuality. In doing so I question the order of binary gender constructions and the heteronormative focus on the body and try to break with gender stereotypes.

My work also addresses the political terms of migration and racism in German society.

About the artist:

Deborah Schmidt studied Political Science and Art and I live and work as a queer-feminist artist in Berlin.
