Goldrausch Künstlerinnenprojekt: Postgraduate Professional Development Programme for Emerging Female Fine Artists

The programme’s course is tailored specifically to meet the objectives of the participants. Every year, 15 female fine artists are admitted to our professional development programme.

We take the participants’ artistic practices as the departure point of our training. The course combines practical tasks with various insights into the art world and the continuous training of presentation techniques and communication strategies. This includes the design of an individual website, studio talks and discussions of art work. Also part of the curriculum are basic knowledge about self-employment, public relations and project planning, the creation of a catalogue and a group exhibition. Two experienced art historians lead the seminars and they additionally invite curators, gallerists and other experts who engage with the artists on an equal footing: Practical know-how, which can be implemented in order to pursue a successful career, is exchanged and further developed. A profound knowledge o f the art sector is equally important, it’s practice and key players as well as an understanding of networks. Here, a fundamental basis is provided by Goldrausch Kunstlerinnenprojekt’s ever-growing network of alumni, which consists of more than 350 former participants.
