As the sidekick of the fertility goddess Demeter, Baubo is among the lesser known faces of Greek mythology—even though she is sometimes interpreted as the personification of sexuality. BRONIĆ/RÖHRICH resolutely contribute to overcoming this desideratum with “The Baubo Reenactement.”

In a contemporary engagement with an untold myth, the artist duo discovers new possibilities of visualizing the female sex and questions the status quo of gender equality in western Europe. In a ritual performance, they reconstruct a specific gesture of Baubo that consoled Demeter after her daughter was abducted and made her laugh. The audience is invited to jointly show solidarity with the “heiresses of Baubo” in a playful ritual.
