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, Brussels, Dresden, 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. 


If you are looking for professional support to realize your ideas concerning visual arts, do not hesitate to contact us. We may be able to acquaint you with valuable contacts.

Please note: Due to the high interest in our network, it will take some time to send you an answer.
