The Museum THE KENNEDYS in Berlin currently presents ‘Decades of Change – Iconic Women of the 60s and 70s’. The exhibition encompasses 60 portraits of female icons who found themselves at the forefront of the women's rights and social equality movement of the 60s and 70s.
Tracing the development of this movement, the selection shows women who significantly influenced the success of this social evolution. The portraits include well-known pioneers of women's rights such as Marlene Dietrich or Katherine Hepburn, while photographs of icons such as Jackie Kennedy or Grace Kelly examine how public perception can change in the course of a career. This is juxtaposed by personalities such as Jane Birkin, Uschi Obermaier, Bianca Jagger and Twiggy, who represented the new, international face of women as they advanced to icons of Swinging London and the social revolution of 68.
