Feminist Salon

Hanna Bekker vom Rath was not only a painter, collector and gallery owner, she also played an eminently important role as a networker, promoter and patron during her lifetime. All this at a time when women in this role were hardly ever envisaged in the art world. In an informal discussion in a salon atmosphere, Berlin gallery owners Jennifer Chert and Tanja Wagner, moderated by Sonja Eismann, will discuss the specific working conditions and challenges for female gallery owners and collectors then and now.


How has the situation changed over the decades? How present and influential are women in this field today? How visible, how canonised are female role models? Is there gender-specific discrimination? Do women collect, network and curate according to different criteria than their male colleagues? To what extent can (feminist) criticism and the demands of the art market be reconciled? 

In 2008, Jennifer Chert (she/her) founded a gallery, which she and Florian Lüdde developed into ChertLüdde in 2016. In 2023, the long-standing gallery director Clarissa Tempestini also joined as a partner. After 13 years in the Kreuzberg district and now based in Schöneberg on the site of a former costume and party decoration shop, ChertLüdde is home to a dynamic programme of international and Berlin-based contemporary artists, a project space, an artist archive and a bookshop.
