Katharina Faller, Graduate trainee

Katharina Faller holds a bachelor’s degree in Cultural Studies from Europa Universität Viadrina Frankfurt/Oder (2017) and a master’s degree in Museum Management and Communication from HTW Berlin (2021). Her interest lies in queer feminist perspectives on the history of arts and cultures. She will bring her experience in social media management and pr work for the arts and cultures sector to Goldrausch Künstlerinnenprojekt.

She is most curious about the potential of mutual support and solidarity among the participating artists, and the empowerment of societally marginalised groups in the art world. Working creatively in a collective structure and the principle of learning from each other is a skill she acquired during her volunteer work at Kleine Humboldt Galerie Berlin (2019-2020).
She started working as a trainee at Goldrausch in 2022.
