Inspired by SALOON Vienna and thrilled by the exchange in Berlin, artist Ursula Susanne Buchart brought the idea of SALOON to Dresden. Here, she founded the local network together with art historian and curator Maren Marzilger in June 2019. The board was completed in May 2020 by art historian Nina Fischäss. Focusing on the exchange between art and theory, the regularly organised events exclusively for SALOON members are bringing together different protagonists from the contemporary art scene in Saxony. Connecting cultural experts, the professional network creates a forum to exchange experiences, discuss ideas and initiate projects and exhibitions. While having an intimate atmosphere during our studio visits we reach out to the public in our open formats to support our members visibility.
