Of the approximately 20,000 objects in the Bröhan Museum's collection, only about 1,500 are by women; the more than 1,000 male artists in the collection are contrasted by 90 female artists. What are the reasons for this imbalance? And who were those who, against all odds, chose a career as a painter, sculptor, graphic artist, or designer in the late 19th and early 20th centuries?

Based on these questions, the exhibition for the first time takes a special look at the women artists in the collection who, with their creativity and skill, courage and entrepreneurial spirit, made a decisive contribution to the development of design and art in Europe. In an art establishment that defined creativity and creativeness as primarily male qualities, their achievement is all the more remarkable - especially since many of them even experienced intersectional discrimination as women and Jews.
