GISELA BREITLING

27 May 1939  – 12 March 2018 in Berlin

Painter and Writer

Carrier of the Federal Cross of Merit on ribbon

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.

The new exhibition at the Das Verborgene Museum in Berlin tells stories of female wartime photographers in Europe. It opens on Wednesday 27 September 2017.

Between 1914 and 1945, during the two international wars of aggression and the Spanish Civil War, women took part as war correspondents, whether as professional photographers and journalists, or as amateur photographers or nurses with cameras. They witnessed the care of the wounded in fi eld hospitals, troop entertainments at base and military confl ict along the lines, just as they recorded life at home on the domestic front.
