Commemorating Gisela Breitling

Mar 11, 2019

Das Verborgene Museum in Berlin, Germany commemorates the first anniversary of the death of museum founder, Gisela Breitling tomorrow.


” Gisela Breitling has dedicated her life to the fight for an appropriate attention to female creativity in past and present, and has developed original patterns of representation and interpretation in her paintings and writings.

She has dared to accuse popular art historians of disregarding female artists and has never stopped intervening in art and gender politics. That has determined her life.

Gisela Breitling made a decisive contribution to the foundation of the association Das Verborgene Museum, Berlin, in 1986, in order to make known to the public the unique achievements of female artists. We are grateful for that. “
