Kommen Frauen nur ins Museum, wenn sie nackt sind? Mit dieser provokanten Frage machten in den 1980er Jahren die Guerilla Girls darauf aufmerksam, dass der Anteil der Kunst von Frauen in den Museen weltweit nicht einmal 5% war. Olle Kamellen?

The Frauenmuseum Berlin is commemorating 100 years of women’s suffrage in Germany with the exhibition “STIMMEN! 100 Jahre Frauenwahlrecht. Künstlerinnen des Frauenmuseums Berlin melden sich zu Wort” (VOICES! 100 years of women’s suffrage. Women artists of the Frauenmuseum Berlin have their say).
The exhibition in the Willy-Brandt-Haus in Berlin opened on 19th February 2019 and lasts until 24th March 2019. On the closing day the museum invites to the following talk:
Women’s suffrage, women’s movement and equality in international comparison
In the exhibition talk, the art historian Katharina Fladt and the artists Caroline Armand, Anna Borgman, Susanne Kienbaum, Rachel Kohn, and Zuzanna Schmukalla will explain the works that were especially created for the exhibition. They will also discuss the situation and their experiences in other countries, the different ways to women’s suffrage – about a revolution or about reforms – and international differences.
” 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. “
The Women’s Museum Berlin is inviting to two new exhibitions to each of which will be published a catalogue.

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 *.

Painter and Writer
The painter and writer Gisela Breitling has dedicated her life to the struggle for appropriate visibility of female creativity in past and present. In her painting and in her writings she developed original patterns of representation and interpretation. She has dared to accuse popular art historians of disregarding female artists, and she has never stopped intervening in gender and art politics. That has determined her life.
In 1986 Gisela Breitling made a decisive contribution to the creation of the association Das Verborgene Museum, Berlin in order to make the public aware of the unique achievements of female artists. We are grateful for that.
