Art As Emancipation
The Berlin Secession was the very first art movement that accepted and embraced female talent. Founded at the end of the 19th century, the movement paved the initial path to female emancipation, not just in the arts, but also in social norms and conventions. In an ongoing effort to recognize the early pioneers, the Liebermann Villa (p. 51) presents the exhibition Women of the Secession II, focusing on artists Julie Wolfthorn, Charlotte Berend- Corinth, Maria Slavona, and Augusta von Zitzewitz and their emancipatory work. Until 29 Feb.
