The exhibition focuses on gender diversity and women in the cinema of the Weimar Republic. Gender swapping, self-determination and homosexuality were themes in film. But the most popular was the “New Woman”. To this day, her type stands for modernity and the breaking of conventions; she comes to life in series like Babylon Berlin and Eldorado KaDeWe. But who were the real new women? After the First World War, they confidently seized the professional opportunities presented to them, including those offered by the burgeoning film industry. Their stories are told through numerous exhibits and film clips.
