The New Woman tells the story of changing societal positions of women, reflected in the Dutch art of the 20th century. Women who – time and again – challenged the ideas of what is typically ‘feminine’ or ‘masculine’, who defied conventions and pushed boundaries. The main focus is on the period 1880-1950, supplemented with contemporary art that invites reflection on the present.
