City of Women

Female Artists in Vienna from 1900 to 1938

Lower Belvedere, 25 January 2019 to 19 May 2019

Today, hardly anyone knows who they were, even though they made a part of art history: artists such as Elena Luksch-Makowsky, Helene Funke, and Erika Giovanna Klien contributed significantly to Viennese Modernism and artistic trends that manifested after the First World War. To commemorate these artists, their art, and their emancipatory achievements, a retrospective has now been staged in the Lower Belvedere.
The exhibition expands the view of Viennese Modernism and focuses on those women who actively helped shape the art scene at the beginning of the twentieth century.
By establishing their own artists’ associations, they were able to network and become active in the art scene.
