Italian artist Monica Bonvicini is a well-known figure in the Berlin art scene. Her latest exhibition, "I do You," showcases some of her most significant works and new productions that explore her interest in feminism and architecture. By reinterpreting famous works by male architects, designers, and artists, Bonvicini exposes the subliminal structures of male chauvinism in modernism.
