Sex­ual lib­er­a­tion can be seen as a com­mon goal of men and women, since they both sought to es­cape the re­stric­tive moral taboos of the 19th cen­tury. Gus­tav Klimt, Egon Schiele, and Oskar Kokoschka – the three most out­stand­ing pain­ters of Vi­en­nese mod­ernism – ap­proached the sub­ject mat­ter gen­er­ally re­ferred to as the ‘woman ques­tion’ from slightly dif­fer­ent, al­beit over­lap­ping per­spec­tives. The ex­hi­bi­tion presents an in-depth ex­plo­ration of these dif­fer­ences and sim­i­lar­i­ties. Pro­vid­ing in­sights into the re­la­tion­ship be­tween the sexes in the early 20th cen­turies, the show elab­o­rates on the ori­gins of a mod­ern sex­ual iden­tity.
