The exhibition "No more bad girls?" opens up perspectives on contemporary women's art praxis. These female artists no longer exclusively reflect on gender binarisms, but rather at the same time also reveal multiple identity categories such as life situations of migrants, social status, sexual orientation, religious affiliation or ethnic origin.
With a critical awareness of a hegemonic, white, canonic feminism, the exhibition uncovers alternative cartographies of a deconstruction of culturally-informed stereotypes of femininity which refer to heterogeneous and complex spatial contexts as "locational affinities". As Marsha Meskimmon puts it, critical cartographies "are maps of affinity rather than influence, and they recognize the possibility of multiple networks of relations between 'feminisms', art, and ideas across a global geopolitical sphere."

The exhibition is accompanied by a catalogue, edited by Claudia Marion Stemberger and Kathrin Becker: 84 pages, contextual essays (English and German), numerous colour images. ISBN 978-3-200-01861-7
