On the occasion of this anniversary, we are, in our forthcoming exhibition, presenting works by members, students, and guest exhibitors of this association – from the beginning of their professional self-determination up to the present time. By means of paintings, drawings, and sculptures, this presentation will evoke an exciting dialogue between historical and contemporary positions.
By establishing their own school for painting and drawing, by social measures and periodical exhibitions, the Verein der Berliner Künstlerinnen has, since the end of the 19th century, been instrumental in bringing about social recognition for the profession of a female artist. Today, the association supports the development of contemporary lady-artists and preserves the history of their professional emancipation.
