WOMEN ARTISTS BERLIN
This series was partially funded in 2020/21 by a Scholarships by Berlin Senate Department for Culture and Europe (Aurélie Pertusot, Laure Catugier, Ramona Taterra, Alice Dittmar). This year it will be funded by the NEUSTART KULTUR _ Stiftung Kunstfonds. For this year I have chosen five artists : Marta Colombo, Nicole Heinzel, Vanessa Farfàn, Marion Orfila, Emilie Delugeau.
“Even today on the artistic scene the inequality between men and women is a reality. Numerous actions are set up to remedy it. I wanted to contribute in my own way, by dedicating this series to women artists living and working in Berlin.
The idea came to me during the first Lockdown in 2020. The galleries were closed, the cultural life at a standstill. Because I think that mutual support today is more than necessary, I proposed to some artist friends to make their video portrait, and then one thing leading to another, I created this series.” Elma Riza, 2022
