We are excited to celebrate our March Saloon in collaboration with Business Riot and A B C Ana Berlin Communications on the second of March, 5pm!


Since 2011, Ana Berlin works as a specialist in the field of communications at the intersection of architecture, design, and visual art. She and her team support individual cultural workers and large companies in connecting with the public sphere by providing a sophisticated image within networks, social media, and the press. The Rrriot Festival is part of Business Riot, a week long festival that offers discourses and workshops on how to combine feminist issues, networking, and careers. Last but not least, the Saloon is an international network for women in the art that connects artists, curators, journalists, gallerists, et al. through monthly meetings, collaborations, and solidarity. Through Ana Berlin’s long time engagement within Vienna's art scene, she is an expert in the fields of social media and networking and will be our host for Saloon#7.

We will pick Ana’s brain on how to make first contacts in a professional setting, how to guide a conversation, and how to socialize in an unknown environment. With a hands on approach, this Saloon will be for everyone who wants to network and get networked.


Join our March Saloon at Ana Berlin's office on the second of March at 5pm and get to know our Saloonistas, Ana Berlin and her team as well as likeminded business ladies! Please register under; event free of charge and in English and German 


Meeting Points:

at 17:00 at Ana Berlin office / Rechte Wienzeile 29/2B, 1040 Wien

ca. 20:00 at Café Anzengruber / Schleifmühlgasse 19, 1040 Wien

Our next Saloon will be held at the exhibition space of the IG Bildende Kunst on the 13th of February, at 6pm.


We are sure you all know the important work that the IG does for the Viennese art scene but do you also know what else it offers other than issuing your artist's ID? Well, we are going to find out soon, as we have the exclusive chance to meet Vasilena Gankovska, artist and board member, and fellow members to discuss what issues they are fighting for. Especially with the prospects of dooming cuts in funding and weakening interest in cultural production by the government, let us find ways to circumvent these restrictions and focus on collaborations and practices that can counter the backlashes we are facing. #globalwomansday


We'll also hear about the future program of the IG Bildende Kunst and how they are supporting female artists. Needless to say, the board members, who are all female, are working for free - is this symptomatic for the cultural scene? Let's find out!


The discussions will be prolonged and our heated heads cooled down with a glass of Spritzer at Café Sperl


Meeting points:

18:00 at IG Bildende Kunst, Gumpendorferstrasse 10-12

ca. 20:00 at Café Sperl, Gumpendorferstrasse 11-13


Please RSVP here!
