Over the last thirty or so years, a renewed general interest in body styling
can be determined among the various cultures of the West. Body modifications
comprise a whole range of practices to which belong branding, scarification,
implantation, deformations of the skull, the foot binding, beauty operations and
body painting. With the discovery of the body as a bearer of sign languages
signifying existential orientation and individuality, body interventions have
recently experienced renewed acceptance. Especially among the various groupings
within youth culture, piercing and tattooing can be expressions of personality
but also of group membership.
In this connection, recourse to "tribal" models of non-European
cultures is especially popular, even though their social and cultural contexts
have, for the most part, not been assimilated by such groups. The exhibition
displays examples of tattoos, decorative scarification and body painting from
the oceans of Asia, Africa, South America and Europe. The exhibition seeks to
describe these in their respective mythological, religious and social contexts.
The exhibits, the majority of which are drawn from collections belonging to
various Frankfurt museums, are supplemented by an extraordinary range of
photographic material. Five additional museums in the Rhine-Main region, each
with their own exhibitions and programs relating to this thematic complex, will
participate at alternating times at both local and regional levels.
