A non-profit arts organisation with a gallery, it has an archive of women artists and organises exhibitions of contemporary and historical women’s art, particularly specialising in the work of women artists in Berlin of the 1920s and 1930s. It began in 1986 resulting from the collaboration of feminist artist and art historian Gisela Breitling and painter Evelyn Kuwertz on the landmark exhibition Das Verborgene Museum – Dokumentation der Kunst von Frauen (The Hidden Museum – Documentation of the art of women), the first catalogue of women artists in Berlin public collections.

Based in an old quarter of the former West German capital, this museum aims to make women’s art and women artists publicly visible. It is building up two accessible archives of books, catalogues and documents (eg invitations and newspaper cuttings) on “Women and Art” and “Women and History”. The Arts archive comprises over 3000 names of contemporary and historic women artists both in Germany and overseas. It also has a collection of works by contemporary and historic women artists and documents on women’s history.

The exhibition program specialises in single or group projects by contemporary women artists, (including an annual theme project), displayed within the 3-storey building. A women artists’ group occupies 8 studios on the top floor.

Lectures, conferences, discussions, readings, concerts, theatre and other performances, movies and videos accompany the shows while an educational program offers guided tours, drawing classes and children’s courses. There is a café and shop on the ground floor.

Founded in 1981 by its present director, artist Marianne Pitzen and the women’s group Frauen Formen Ihre Stadt (Women shape their town), its work is now being continued at a sister institution in Berlin.

Based at this ancient Roman spa town in the Rhine valley, near Frankfurt, this museum is dedicated to the rediscovery and documentation of women’s achievements, and acknowledging the powers of women as creators of culture. The museum particularly focuses on women in the history of Wiesbaden; an acknowledgment of female artists; and basic research concerning women as the carriers of culture.

The museum’s public displays consist of generally one inhouse exhibition with changing exhibitions of women’s artwork. It has also established an archive of materials relating to women’s history, collected from existing archives and libraries as well as an audiotape collection.

Four floors of the building are dedicated to exhibition space with the top floor used as an office, library and preparation area. Postcards and exhibition catalogues are available from the small shop in the reception area on the ground floor. First opened in 1984, the museum is run by an independent organising body, the Frauenwerkstatt Wiesbaden – Zentrum für Kommunikation und Bildung e.V. (Women’s Workshop Wiesbaden Centre for Communication and Education).
