The phrase “Enough talk, let’s play!” comes from the character Billie Jean King in the 2017 film titled “Battle of the Sexes,” she utters it to her male opponent in tennis, Bobby Riggs. The film is based on a true story and tells of the struggle for gender equality using the example of unequal victory bonuses in the tennis tournament. Even today, women earn less than men in many areas; in the art operating system, the art of female artists is offered on the art market for less money than that of male artists. Against this backdrop, as well as in light of the current #metoo debate, the group exhibition titled “Enough Talking, Let’s Play!” interrogates whether feminist issues are still relevant in art today or whether they have shifted issues to other aspects after the feminist revolution in the 1970s. Nine artists and the architects Mona Mahall and Asli Serbest were invited to participate, each of whose work conveys a different attitude or its own strong position in relation to the medium in which they each work and in relation to the theme to which their works each refer.
