The Flow Exhibition

Some 2 billion people in the world menstruate. An additional 1.5 billion have had or will have their periods. Nevertheless, menstruation is considered a taboo topic. The exhibition combines personal and museum objects, interviews, music, film and art to examine the discourse and debates over the last decades, trace menstrual product development from the late 19th century to the present and provide space for menstruators’ voices.

The special exhibition Flow: The Exhibition on Menstruation (German: Läuft. Die Ausstellung zur Menstruation) is on view at the MEK from 6 October 2023 to 6 October 2024. More content-related information on the exhibition is available under the hashtag #mekläuft.
