Bringing to light stunning, never-before published photographs and letters, the exhibition TransTrans explores a transatlantic network of individuals from the early twentieth century through the 1960s who profoundly shaped emerging trans histories. Exchanging letters and photographs among themselves, these individuals created new communities in private, but they also sought to educate doctors and the public by submitting their photographs and stories for publication in medical journals and popular magazines.

The exhibition retraces the connections between these private individuals, the medical and scientific authorities with whom they entered into dialogue, and the ways in which these dialogues became public or remained hidden away within archives.

Curated by Alex Bakker, Rainer Herrn, Michael Thomas Taylor, and Annette F. Timm
