Former SALOON Berlin member, Dr. Franziska Storch, was the one who brought the SALOON spirit to Hamburg — she understood the power of connecting great women who are working in the local art scene. Consequently, SALOON Hamburg was founded in January 2018 by Storch and her colleague, Charlotte Gaitzsch; both art historians, curators, and art guides. SALOON Hamburg facilitates an exchange between local members by regularly hosting meetings, promoting their works on Instagram, and by organizing yearly exhibitions. Additionally, the network increases its connection to other players in the local art scene by hosting public events such as the talks “Why female perspectives matter like never before”. Furthermore, SALOON Hamburg encourages the members to connect with members of the other international SALOON cities to engage with the widespread, diverse network of women. SALOON Hamburg also strives for equal treatment and payment of all participants in the art world and is open to potential inspiring and supportive cooperation partners.
