Berlin culture : at the Very top, women are a scarce commodity

Anna Bergmann is meeting for the first Time at the theatre. The Jury has their production of "Persona" from the German theatre – with Corinna Harfouch – selected, in may, it is to be seen in Berlin. In addition to Bergmann, the Director Claudia Bauer and the Performers of She She Pop. Three works of the ten arose in a female Director. What accurately reflects the result of the study "women in culture and the media" by the German cultural Council. Thereafter, 30 percent of the productions are sourced at the German theatre of women, in comparison with the number of women in theatre leadership positions is still a high rate.

In Berlin there is with Annemie Vanackere (Hebbel am Ufer) and Shermin Langhoff (Maxim Gorki Theater), two Director of the interior, both for years, very successfully. The big spectacle scenes, whether Deutsches Theater, Berliner Ensemble, Volksbühne, or stage, are in male hands. This is also nationwide. Only about twenty percent of the Theater to have a female line, and there are more of the smaller houses. With the exception of Karin Beier, Director of the Hamburg Schauspielhaus.

And how many chief conductor of the Berlin orchestra are on the console? Zero. The concert summing up of mostly indoor office deputies in the seven major Metropolitan orchestras, by contrast, 13 out of 27. Staatskapelle, Deutsche and Komische Opera, Philharmonic, DSO and RSB and the concert hall: Together, the seven have reached the rate of almost. Only in the Philharmonie women are currently missing in the orchestra tip.

So it looks similar everywhere in the culture of Berlin in the Rest of the Republic. At the very top, women are a scarce commodity, in the Mittelbau you cavort, and at the universities are often fewer men than women are Vice versa. It is progressing slowly, but steadily, you might think: in 1987, twelve percent of the women in German orchestras is female, it is now almost 40 percent. A men's team such as the Vienna Philharmonic orchestra with distressing 9.5 percent proportion of women still 2017 enjoys dinosaur Status. Wherein according to the latest Dossier of the German orchestra Association in this country, the rule of the Ensemble, the fewer the women: The famous.

at the Very top of the great Berlin Museum houses women are rare

Everywhere the same picture: at the Very top of the great Berlin Museum houses and cultural institutions, women are also rare. Stiftung Preußischer Kulturbesitz (Hermann Parzinger), Berliner Festspiele (Thomas Oberender), German Historical Museum (Raphael Gross), berlinische Galerie (Thomas Köhler) – we have never had here. Only After all: Stephanie Rosenthal draws for well over a year, the immersive fortunes of the Gropius building, they lifted the house neat. And again, it is 30 percent: the proportion of women-led museums nationwide. only five percent of the more than 25 years ago.

As the state Minister for Culture Monika Grütters can give a woman engaged in studies, project offices, start-up Finance, committees, and members of the Supervisory Board on a parity basis to occupy or round woman tables gather. For all the declared sensitivity for the infamous glass ceiling is nothing else Grütters often left, as to appoint a man. What has your registered also scolding. So they named the Humboldt-Forum in the succession of the all-male Founding artistic Director trio with Hartmut Dorgerloh a man to the Director-General. And as already in place for the management of the museums in the castle provided for Inés de Castro withdrew from the Stuttgart Linden Museum in the short term, took over Lars Christian Koch at the Ethnological and Asian art.

In London is the Tate Britain in Women's hands

Grütters has scoured the international Museum landscape thoroughly after women for the Humboldt Forum. Whether or not the British Museum, the Musée du Quai Branly as an Ethnological treasure chest of Paris or the Metropolitan Museum in New York – everywhere the men at the top. After all, Marion Ackermann as Director-General of the State art collections of Dresden, one of the great German houses. In London the Tate Britain is in a woman's hand. Director Maria Balshaw shows from April onwards in the Department of art from 1960 onwards, only works by women, at least a year. Offensive, of which you can at the Berlin State museums only dream of.

The Museum-Mittelbau, it is here, however, is similar to that of the orchestras with the concert master. Head of individual houses and curators will find a plenty of, such as the copper engraving Cabinet, where Dagmar Korbacher took recently, after twelve years as a researcher and exhibition maker. And everywhere in Germany women are often directed to smaller houses, in Berlin, Kollwitz-Museum (Josephine Gabler), in the bridge-Museum (Lisa Marei Schmidt) or at the Haus am Waldsee.

There Katja Blomberg made 14 years ago, it was with the former municipal gallery at all. The Director, participants in these often poorly-funded houses are not only responsible for the artistic, and often the structural renewal to lift you in painstaking Persuasion. Thus, it was possible Blomberg, the old factory owner's Villa in Dahlem around renew. And Annemarie Jäggi fought at the Bauhaus-archive for a renovation and expansion.

For the successor to Dieter Kosslick hardly a woman

state Minister of Culture Monika Grütters found had rules in 2018, the staffing future of the Berlinale. Also for the succession of festival chief Dieter Kosslick – the in February, a bear-competition for the first time, about 40 percent, and a total program, with 37 per cent female Directors-share presented on the international stage is hardly a woman. Film festivals like DokLeipzig or the Viennale have, more recently, female leaders, but none of the really big tankers, Venice, Cannes, Toronto and Locarno. Now it became at least a double top, with the Italian Carlo Chatrian as artistic Director, and the Dutch Mariette Rissenbeek as a managing Director.

He designed, and managed? Just the Film and in the media numerous odds initiatives have done in the meantime to ProQuote Film get involved. Over 500 creative women in key positions are represented here, it says on the Website, in the Concealed Structural, of the theatre-kindergarten to family compatible working hours for managers and leaders. Women in positions of leadership are to be found everywhere in the culture, especially in administrative, rather, functions serve.

Want to enable hot: The men, the women. You are less in the spotlight than behind the Scenes. For example, Hortensia Völckers, as Head of the Federal culture Foundation. Or Anne Leppin as managing Director of the German film Academy, starting in April, along with Maria Köpf, the longtime producer of 2016, is also in the film promotion changed.

The media Board Berlin-Brandenburg operates the promotion of women written for the promotion of women

Kirsten forbids, Head of the media Board Berlin-Brandenburg, has been on the flags. Yet it changes little. Up to this year's 69. Lola-Gala have been awarded since the founding of the German movie price only five Times the Director's best Film: Helma Sanders-Brahms, Margarethe von Trotta, two Times , Caroline Link and 2017, according to 14 men-years, Maren Ade for "Toni Erdmann". Still more than the only Oscar ever went to a woman in 2013, Kathryn Bigelow.

Also typical: the volunteer. Jeanine meerapfel acts as President of the Academy of the arts, Iris is the President of the film Academy was Berben, until Ulrich Matthes replaced in February.

there is Also a Berlin that is so important DAAD artist program is maintained for years of women, Nele Hertling, Katarina Narbutovic and since the 2018 Silvia Fehrmann. Or the Villa Massimo in Rome, one of the prestigious projects of external cultural policy. There, Julia Draganovic has been operating from July as the Boss. In the Federal cultural policy women are top, because there are with Michelle Müntefering as culture Minister of state at the Federal foreign office since 2018, a second woman beside her audience. The direction In which the real equality is probably quicker to implement, from top to bottom or Vice-versa?

theatre Director Anna Bergmann, born in 1978, belongs to a Generation that could accelerate the tenacious Progress in the woman question. She is drama Director at Badisches Staatstheater Karlsruhe, is currently the only women's stage there. A unique model test: Intendant Peter Spuhler has encouraged them.
