RADICAL FEMALE ROLE-MODELS: PIONEERING GALLERISTS ERICA BRAUSEN AND MUTTER EY
Refugee Art Dealers in Britain: half-day conference co-organized by Sotheby’s Institute of Art and TIAMSA, The International Art Market Studies Association
For the Refugee Art Dealers in Britain conference, I delivered a paper on the idea of Johanna 'Mutter' Ey as an outsider role-model for the Hanover Gallery's pioneering gallerist Erica Brausen.
The paper examined several key areas of similarity between Ey and Brausen: first, the idea they shared of seeking an artistic refuge from fascism in Palma de Mallorca; second, the decision they took to fight for success despite being ‘outsider’; and third, the choice they made to embrace and promote the avant-garde.
