The Bonn Women's Museum (German Frauenmuseum Bonn) promotes female artists (both German and international) through a diverse program of exhibitions, examined in the context of new experimental art. Mally Khorasantchi will be featured among other artists in their upcoming show ‘Women – War and Peace’ which runs from April 19th to November 8th, 2015 in Bonn, Germany.
Mally will show 7 paintings of her Deutschland Series that have been created based on Mally’s family history and her father returning from World War II: “As a child, I remember seeing photographs in my mother’s old handbag. Some of them were very graphic and disturbing, like one of my injured father. Unsurprisingly, these images have always remained ingrained in my memory. When I finally decided it was time to use some of them as the background and for the groundwork in some paintings so began this body of work.”
The International Peace Conference of Socialistic Women in Bern as well as the International Women’s Peace Conference in Den Haag celebrate their 100th anniversary in 2015. More than 1000 ambassadors of 12 countries have overcome various obstacles in 1915 to discuss peace and draft resolutions. Based on this occasion, the Women’s Museum Bonn has initiated an exhibition about Women in War and Peace.
