Ursula Böhmer's project takes a unique approach to the myths surrounding cows. From 1998 to 2011, she travelled to 25 European countries to portray these powerful yet gentle animals.
She photographed different species, many of which are at risk of extermination, documenting where they came from and the climatic conditions that impacted their physiognomy. The animals do not, however, appear as just objects in a catalogue to be looked at systematically.
Böhmer presents the cows as part of a communicative process, where the visual exchange between animals and people becomes central. All Ladies presents the diversity of agriculture and also reminds us of Europe's common cultural history.
The exhibition is complemented by a programme of lectures, concerts and films, reflecting in diverse forms the themes conveyed by the photographs.
