Berlin has a rich and long-standing tradition of women engaged in the 
fields of media arts, media activism and digital culture. Today over 
half of Berlin's independent project spaces and initiatives revolving 
around the themes of tech, media and digital culture are run by women. A 
broad range of female curators and activists continue to shape net 
politics - initiating independent programmes, hosting events and leading 
research at Berlin's universities. Despite this large female contingent, 
and in a city where the workforce is generally evenly distributed, it is 
at odds that the theoretical discourse on media art and net activism, 
executive roles and directorships, as well panelists and participants at 
events and festivals, are still male-dominated. In a forward-thinking 
city like Berlin, this ongoing gap should be addressed so that the wider 
fields of media arts and activism are fully inclusive of the multitude 
of female skills and viewpoints on offer.

At this event, SUPERMARKT highlights and showcases a selection of the 
women who have played an important role in shaping the profile of Berlin 
as a digital culture city. We will learn more about their history, 
career paths, and the narratives of their work and life. Ten inspiring 
women in the field will join us, and answer questions against the 
backdrop of their own lives and careers, including what drives them to 
continue the work they do, what have been the crucial moments of their 
careers, and who are their professional mentors, support networks, and 
inspirations. This evening will provide an opportunity to get to know 
this community, share inspirations, identify trending themes in the 
field, and gauge both common resources and grounds for future 
collaborations. Whilst the focus of this event will be on the diversity 
of Berlin's female media art community, of course anyone is invited to
