ORGANISATION

Sektion Bern/Romandie

Eighty-seven women artists from the cantons of Bern, Aargau, Fribourg, Geneva, Neuchâtel, Nidwalden, Obwalden, Solothurn, Ticino, Vaud, Valais, Zurich, and Zug are members of the SGBK Bern/Romandie section.

We aim to achieve equality for women artists in the art world, in exhibitions and competitions, in the acquisitions made by the public sector as well as in their representation in commissions and juries.

In 2003, the SGBK Berne voted to finally elect a woman as a director of the Kunsthalle Berne. This became reality in 2015 with Valérie Knoll.

The first section exhibition in 2021 is entitled "How Women Vote: Are they finding their voice?". It is hosted in Olten, in the gallery of the Kunstverein Olten.
