The SALOON Berlin is the first SALOON that came into existence. From Berlin, the SALOON concept spread out throughout many cities. In 2012, independent curator Tina Sauerlaender gathered 10 great women from the Berlin art scene and started the network. Since then, the network in Berlin grew to several hundred members. Today Sauerlaender is running the SALOON together with the artist Ornella Fieres and the art historian Larissa Fischer. Besides organizing the regular internal meetings and events for its members, SALOON Berlin organizes public events in Berlin, like the panel series Why Have There Been No Great Women Artists?* in cooperation with Performing Encounters or the symposium and screening Invisible To Whom? Not To Me in cooperation with Distinguished Diva Collective at Literaturhaus Berlin. In 2015, Tina Sauerlaender and Alina Heinze, who at that time had been co-running the SALOON, curated the exhibition SALOON at SEXAUER Gallery in Berlin, presenting 25 artists of the SALOON Berlin network.
