Exiled from Germany in 1937, Alice Salomon died in New York, alone, in August 1948. The same year in December, Swiss artist DESSA (Deborah Sharon Abeles) was born in Southern Rhodesia, today Zimbabwe.
Who was Alice Salomon? Social reformer, educator, feminist, economist and peace activist, Alice Salomon founded the Social School for Women in Berlin in 1908. Only recently did the artist herself learn about the intensive life and achievements of this extraordinary woman pioneer to whom we owe so much. The more the artist read and learned about Alice Salomon, the more parallels and echoes between their personal and international lives came to light.
DESSA revives our collective memory. She uses various techniques to create a tangible approach to Alice Salomon’s life: paintings, collages, objects, installations and an imaginary conversation together form a thorough narrative. The frauen museum wiesbaden presents this exhibition for the first time to coincide with 70 years since Alice Salomon’s death.
A book published by Verlag Hentrich & Hentrich accompanies the exhibition.
DESSA lives and works in Berlin and in Pully, Switzerland.
The Women’s Museum Berlin is inviting to two new exhibitions to each of which will be published a catalogue.

Pionierpflanzen und weiterer Wildwuchs
17 artists of the Women’s Museum Berlin are taking part in this exhibition.
During the art festival 48h Neukölln in Berlin the artists of the Women’s Museum Berlin will exhibit their works and ask visitors to enter the exhibition room alone or in pairs. Visitors are invited to communicate their true impressions about the art works. In the center is the question: How do I perceive art, and how do I express my feelings about it? Which vocabulary do I have for that?
Any visitor who has truly dealt with art and has written down his words will be rewarded with an FMB cloth bag – REAL TIME ART *.

OTHERNESSis the first online exhibition of HERSTORYMUSEUM showing special visions from the past centuries of representations of women from colonized, groups created by female artists from dominant groups, where –without discarding the contradictions– the presence of the Otherness is not so evident, perhaps because they have been conceived by women. As Simone de Beauvoir argued: The Other of Man is Woman (1952).
