As a child, I hardly had any female-read role models. Not for life and certainly not for art. I knew Vincent van Gogh, Leonardo da Vinci and Pablo Picasso. “Picasso, that genius”, I heard over and over again. Mostly artists hung and still hang in museums. At school we only talked about artists. Expressionist artists, Impressionist artists, blah blah blah, genius this, genius that. The male generic in this case did not include women*.
It sucked – and it still sucks!
Six of the invited artists* live in Berlin, the others I discovered online and invited because I admire their work. Many of the works shown here were created especially for this exhibition, which thematically deals with the everyday, whether through material or content. With this exhibition, I want to create a new network and ally myself, to show and promote exchange between women artists*.
That’s why I’m writing it down here, dear diary. And so that I always remember:
