American artist Faith Ringgold has been challenging perceptions of African American identity and gender inequality for more than decades, but her work still retains a contemporary resonance.

Ringgold has worked prolifically since the early 1960s and has become well-known for her politically charged artworks. Protesting and activism has remained an integral part of her life throughout, and she co-founded the National Black Feminist Organisation in 1973.

This comprehensive survey will be her first solo show in a European gallery, and include everything from paintings and soft sculptures to story quilts and political posters made during the days of the Black Power movement.
