The International Association of Women’s Museums (IAWM) deeply mourns the death of member and friend Elisabeth von Dücker, who died in July.

In May, she had written to IAWM and was happy to be a member of the network. She had been connected to the women’s museums and to IAWM for years through common concerns and cooperation. In 2013 she had contributed to the book ‘Women’s: Museum. Curatorial Politics in Feminism, Education, History, and Art’. She has been known for her curatorial practice with special emphasis on women’s issues and gender equality.
