SALOON#20 with Nina Schedlmayer

For SALOON#20 we were really grateful that Nina Schedlmayer took some time off to talk to us about journalism, art criticism, and independent blogging in the fields of contemporary art. She is the chief editor of the magazine "morgen" and writes the blog artemisia, with which she rattles the male dominant art world. Nina gave us vital insights into how she became a sought after writer for magazines and newspapers and how differently and more openly it is to write for one's own medium. When asked the obvious question on what she would suggest emerging writers, she told us to focus on a field and become an expert - that way one always has insights and can write more profound texts. We were really grateful for this empowering evening and hope that more women start their own endeavours into journalism and blogging.
