The exhibition Tender HooksGoldrausch 2022 will run from September 10th until October 30th and features works of the 15 women artists participating in the Goldrausch Künstlerinnenprojekt 2022. For the first time ever, the final exhibition will take place in the Kommunale Galerie Berlin in Berlin-Wilmersdorf.

Every year since its foundation in 1989, the professionalisation programme has brought together 15 women artists from every field of the visual arts and with different experiences, personal aspirations and goals. What unites them is a common desire to establish themselves as artists. The one-year training course supports them in this endeavour by imparting the necessary professional knowledge and offering a forum for collegial exchange. This creates a counter-model to the archetype of the lone wolf, which is prevalent in the art world and throughout art history. This model aims to overcome the structural barriers that still exist for women in the arts today.
