ART WITHOUT MEN

KATY HESSEL IN CONVERSATION WITH ELISABETH PRIEDL
SAMSTAG, 28.09. 2024 / 14h00

AKADEMIE DER BILDENDEN KÜNSTE WIEN, AULA

No art form has excluded the role of women so systematically as the visual arts. KATY HESSEL has been almost single-handedly redressing that balance since 2015 with her project, The Great Women Artists. Her best-selling book, The Story of Art without Men (Hutchinson Heinemann, 2022), restores for the first time the role of women who have been rendered invisible by the industry of art history but who have made fundamental contributions to its development. Hessel is an art historian, creator, lecturer, and writer who will remove the veil of this secret history in conversation with art historian ELISABETH PRIEDL, senior academic at Vienna’s Academy of Fine Arts.

KATY HESSEL is an art historian, author, curator, and broadcaster. She has become one of the most exciting voices in the art world today. Her debut book, The Story of Art without Men (Hutchinson Heinemann, 2022), is a Sunday Times and New York Times bestseller. In 2024, she launched the ongoing global audio guide series Museums Without Men, which highlights the women and gender non-conforming artists in the public collections of international museums.
