The works of the Swiss artist Katrin Niedermeier can be seen in the exhibition Fun Feminism at the Kunstmuseum Basel. The exhibition starts on 24 September 2022 and runs until 19 March 2023.

The Kunstmuseum Basel | Gegenwart presents with the exhibition Fun Feminism around 40 works by artists who illuminate feminist perspectives with a humorous look. The starting point for this is the in-house collection, specifically supplemented by national and international loans. For around 50 years, artists, art historians, gallery owners and curators have been working to strengthen feminist perspectives in the visual arts: ways of presenting gender images and roles are thus redefined. Many of the works created with this intention use irony and self-irony as well as humor to reveal patriarchal structures with a wink and also to expose them. In addition to socially critical perspectives, empowering and pleasurable moments are also discussed.

Artists represented in the exhibition: Polly Apfelbaum, Monika Baer, Lynda Benglis, Dara Birnbaum, Pauline Boudry & Renate Lorenz, Dineo Seshee Bopape, Ruth Buchanan, Pauline Curnier Jardin, Paz Errázuriz, Jana Euler, Sylvie Fleury, Andrea Fraser, Ellen Gallagher, Anna Gili, Guerrilla Girls, Ani Liu, Muda Mathis & Sus Zwick, Kirsi Mikkola, Ebecho Muslimova, Lorraine O’Grady, Pipilotti Rist, Tracey Rose, Martha Rosler, Karin Sander, Sarina Scheidegger & Ariane Koch, Cindy Sherman, Wiebke Siem, Lena Maria Thüring, Rosemarie Trockel, Fatimah Tuggar, Lily van der Stokker, Kawita Vatanajyankur, Puck Verkade, Marianne Wex, Nives Widauer, Melanie Jame Wolf, Betty Woodman, Aline Stalder & Nadine Cueni & Katharina Kemmerling & Katrin Niedermeier.
