An outstanding artist and a renowned photographer:
The story of Niki de Saint Phalle (1930-2002) is that of an artist on a quest for emancipation in a world dominated by men. Her highly individual stance and her profoundly innovative oeuvre left a firm imprint on the cultural landscape of the 20th century.
In the male-dominated world of American photography Margaret Bourke-White (1904-1971) was a media star. Her pictures testify to her “unquenchable desire to be present when history is being made”. Bourke-White wanted to be the “eyes of the age” and travelled around the whole world.
