Why is it important to divide artists according to their biological sex, their attributed at birth gender? In itself, it is not. Or rather, it would not be if throughout history there had not been a gigantic cultural bias that led to the predilection of AMAB talents. Words and concepts such as AMAB (Assigned Male At Birth), cultural bias and biological sex are now within the reach of anyone with an internet connection, enough curiosity and common sense but, without even going too far back in world history and in art, the movement of universal recognition of talent regardless that is occurring today would not have been possible without the battles and strength of the activists of yesterday.
The Independent once wrote about Tadao Ando’s work “If there’s one man responsible for making concrete sexy again, it’s this guy” – I couldn’t agree more. Strolling around Bonte Museum means entering the architectural dialogue between nature, concrete, water and light – all element that are so characteristic of Ando’s work. The museum is composed on two buildings – a triangular prism and a geometrical cube – which create this architectural environment that easily harmonizes with its environment.
