Class Ladies!

100 Jahre Öffnung der Berliner Kunstakademie für Frauen

Schloss Biesdorf

As of March 1919 women were allowed to study at the Royal Academy of Art in Berlin. Until then they had been dependent on private teachers, overpriced "ladies' classes" or arts and crafts schools. Today only a few of the female artists who asserted themselves in the patriarchal art world in the 19th century until the First World War are known and were
sometimes able to fight for a recognized position that would secure their livelihood.
