March 26, 2024, 9:00 – 16:00 CET

International Meeting Women Artists and Museums: Towards a New Museum of Women Artists in Zagreb brings together esteemed museum professionals, curators, researchers, and scholars to examine and reflect upon diverse concepts, strategies, and practices of women’s and gender museums, with a specific focus on museums dedicated to women artists. Lectures will provide insight into museums’ origins, visions, and missions as regards aims, strategic objectives, and audience involvement, as well as into collaborations and networks formed locally, nationally, and internationally.

The aim of the meeting is to contribute to a more comprehensive understanding of the place of museums dedicated to the art of women artists in the landscape of art museums in general and of women’s and gender museums in particular, as well as to promote cooperation and future exchanges between different institutions, practitioners, and researchers.

Meeting participants:

Elke Krasny (Academy of Fine Arts Vienna, Austria), Meral Akkent (Istanbul Gender Museum, Turkey), Gaby Franger (Museum Women’s Cultures Regional – International, Fürth, Germany), Darlene Clover (Faculty of Education, Leadership Studies (Adult Education), University of Victoria, Canada), Bettina Bab (Bonn Women’s Museum, Germany), Harriet Loffler (The Women’s Art Collection at Murray Edwards College, University of Cambridge, United Kingdom)
