The art historians Charlotte Gaitzsch and Franziska Storch (former member of SALOON Berlin) founded the SALOON Hamburg in 2018.


The SALOON is an international network for women active in the art scenes of Berlin, Hamburg, Paris and Vienna. The members work as curators, artists or journalists, as well as in galleries, museums or universities. The SALOON considers itself a non-profit network for females of the local art scene with the objectives of creating new art-projects, organizing exhibitions, enabling members to exchange experiences and knowledge as well as other art-related collaborations.

Independent curator and writer Tina Sauerlaender (Director & Head Curator of peer to space) founded the SALOON Berlin in summer 2012. She runs the network together with the artists Ornella Fieres () and Julia Herfurth.


In 2017 the SALOON was expanded to Vienna and Paris. Since January 2018 Franziska Storch and Charlotte Gaitzsch establish the network in Hamburg. Furthermore they work as independent curators, writers and art mediators, specialized in contemporary art.
