"Unconventional German Expressionism: Gender-Neutral Traditional Attire and the Experience of an Era"

This series of portraits is inspired by the works of female German expressionists such as Käthe Kollwitz, Paula Modersohn-Becker, Gabriele Münter, Marianne von Werefkin, Else Lasker-Schüler, Hannah Höch, and Anita Rée. The portraits combine the expressive power of these artists with traditional Dutch attire from the same period. By adapting these traditional costumes to contemporary standards of gender neutrality, the portraits explore both historical and modern perspectives on identity and expression. These artworks invite the viewer to reflect on the evolution of gender roles and cultural traditions through the lens of unconventional expressionism.
