The Cultural Work of Artist Gertie Fröhlich: (In)visibility in Viennese Post-war Histories
Schlagworte:Vienna, art, post-war cultural history, gender, Gertie Fröhlich
This article brings visibility to the life and exploits of Viennese artist Gertie Fröhlich. Her story illustrates the obstacles women cultural workers encountered during the post-war period. The contribution reveals how Fröhlich, to side-step these gendered obstacles, exerted influence through her relationships with male post-war cultural actors. Later in life, she finally achieved artistic success in her own right, both locally and abroad. Despite her many accomplishments, Fröhlich remains nearly invisible in prevailing post-war cultural histories. This article speaks to her relative obscurity while exploring the reasons behind it.
