The Goldrausch project for women artists promotes the careers of outstanding, emerging women artists based in Berlin. It is an independent professional training programme for female visual artists; a one-year postgraduate professional development course, an exhibition and public events take place within its framework.
The Goldrausch Künstlerinnenprojekt has been run by Goldrausch Frauennetzwerk e. V. since 1989. It was founded to counteract the structural discrimination of female visual artists in exhibitions and on the art market. Now more than ever, it is not enough to just make good art!
Broad professional knowledge and expertise are necessary in order to be successful and visible in the public domain. Therefore it is our aim to promote women who pursue their career as freelance artists, helping them gain further practical knowledge and creating a public arena for their work. The programme is tailored specifically to meet the objectives of the participants. The participants’ artistic practice is the departure point of our training. The course combines practical tasks with insights into the art world, training of presentation techniques and communication strategies. The seminars are led by experienced art historians/producers. Guests include curators, gallery owners, artists and other experts who impart subject-specific knowledge at eye level. With more than 400 Alumnae and an ever growing network, Goldrausch Künstlerinnenprojekt offers a profound basis.
