The proceeds from the TERRE DES FEMMES charity art auction (October 19th, 2019, Berlinische Galerie) will go 100% to charitable work to protect girls from gender-specific violence. 49 artists support the work by making their works available for auction. The aim of the charity auction is not only to invest in art, but also in an equal, self-determined and free future for girls.

For this year’s TERRE DES FEMMES charity art auction, artists were carefully selected who not only impress with the high quality of their artistic work, but also reflect the current zeitgeist. In addition to the artists who have supported TERRE DES FEMMES since the first charity auction, new established artists and young talents could be won for the auction by specifically addressing them. The result is an exciting mixture of contemporary positions from photography, drawing, sculpture and painting.
