We're excited that April's Saloon will take place at the space of the VBKÖ (Verein Bildender Künstlerinnen Österreich / Austrian Association of Women Artists) on the
19th of April, at 6pm.
The VBKÖ is the oldest of its kind (founded in 1910), thus a pioneer of women's associations and needless to say a role model for SALOON Vienna. Its longevity, intersectional exhibition program, and critical past - one that started as a secessionist movement from the dominant male art world as well as one that does not deny its past ties to National Socialism - is what makes the VBKÖ a historical landmark and seminal exhibition space for female practitioners in Vienna.

The SALOON wants to contemplate this critical past but moreover talk about its future and how we can contribute to and participate with an all-women's association. What does it do and what advantages does it bring? How feminist, inclusive, intersectional can it be? And, most importantly, how can it further evolve as a space for empowerment and equality?
So, let’s go where everything started and discuss these issues with some of its board members: Rini Mitra, Steph Misa, Ruby Sircar, Veronika Burger, Catharina Bond, Angela Wiedermann, Hilde Fuchs and Barbara Eichhorn. Let's show solidarity and respect as this Salon stands for over a 100 years and contemplate a future together. The evening will be rounded off with dinner and drinks at Reinthaler's Beisl.

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!

SALOON#6 @ IG BILDENDE KUNST
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.
18:00 at IG Bildende Kunst, Gumpendorferstrasse 10-12
ca. 20:00 at Café Sperl, Gumpendorferstrasse 11-13
Please RSVP here!
