For our last Saloon in 2019, we had the pleasure of visiting the SECESSION and have an intimate dicussion with the curators Annette Südbeck and Jeannette Pacher. Other than getting to know the structures and decision making processes behind the Association of Visual Artists, we got first-hand insights into the work of the curators at the Secession. They work closely with the artists on their exhibitions which allows them to a more intimate and individual approach to curating. Furthermore, we...

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...

In September, the first SALOON of the season was taking place at Vienna Contemporary, where we enjoyed a prive tour of art by women, which was followed by a private view of Alexia's Stuefers home and her collection of feminist art. It was a full day of great art, food, drinks and discussions on how we can make art by women more visible, how it should be treated better on the art market and how to live with feminist art. We thank Alexia for this encouraging evening and hope that all our members...

This was our fantastic SALOON Summer Party in June 2019. We were invited to the Atelierhaus Pelzgasse, where the SALOON members Käthe Schönle, Sophie Dvorak and Julia Faber showed us their studios and what they're working on right now. The evening was rounded off with drinks, talks, music and a lot of laughter! It was a good start to talk about what our summer vacation and all the projects coming up. Stay tuned, Autumn 2019 is gonna get fiery!

Director Gabriele Schor and her assistant curator Julia Hürner gave us a private tour through their current exhibition “Louise Lawler – She´s here”, the very first solo show by the artist in Austria - the Verbund owns the largest collection of Lawler works in the world! We learned about the main focusses of the Verbund collection, how and why Gabriele Schor acquires works and what the term...

For our Summer Saloon we were treated with a special tour by KÖR's managing director Martina Taig, who gave us exclusive insights in the structures behind KÖR as well as a guided tour to some of her favorite public art pieces. KÖR is THE institution in Vienna that takes care of commissioning, supporting, and developing public art in all of Vienna's 23 districts and therefore an important supportive institution for artists. But guess who gets funded more on average?! Well, yes. We learned it...

Saloon#10 took place at the Kunstraum Niederösterreich, where we joined forces with KunstraumKabinet, their very own networking meetings. The KunstraumKabinet was established in 2017 by Käthe Hager von Strobele and Elisabeth Makovec as a form of exchange between women in the arts. It started as a group of mainly mothers with young children, for whom networking is especially difficult and developed into an open space for every woman working professionally in the arts field interested in an...
