Introduction: Katharina Mouratidi, Artistic Director f3 – freiraum für fotografie in conversation with Nan Goldin, photographer (requested).

Women conquered the new medium of photography in the 19th century. As pioneers, they contributed essentially to its development and the emergence of new photographic ways of seeing. Unlike the traditional disciplines of the visual arts, such as sculpture and painting, photography offered more equality. It enabled women to realize their idea of a self-determined, creative life, to travel and to earn their own money.

The exhibition #womenphotographer Vol. I wants to provide insights into the diverse work of women photographers and to initiate a deeper study of their view of the world.
