To confront the segregation perpetrated and perpetuated in the 1980s by American cultural authorities, the collective Group Material chose to temporarily convert the exhibition format into another cognitive model. Notably through a timeline, their exhibitions, both complex and inclusive, brought together a variety of styles, ethnic groups, genders or sexual orientations, attempting to break down the insider/outsider hierarchy operating within the art milieu, and the hegemony of a White male heteronormative.

Drawing inspiration from the strategies worked out by Group Material, the show focuses on the development of the Mouvement de Libération des Femmes (MLF), the women’s liberation movement in Geneva that sprang from a host of reformist and radical groups.
