Statistics speak plainly
Since 2010 the artist and researcher Elisabeth Eberle has been collecting examples and statistics on the gender gap in her long-term project « Women* count » to confront art institutions with the discrimination practices taking place within them. (accessed: 18.01.2021)
The annually published Art Market Report 2019 also reveals that only just under 36 % of the world's living female artists are represented by galleries, less than 5 % of female artists are traded at auction and there is not a single FLINTA among the top ten artists in the world. Moreover, there are considerable price differences between artworks by male and female artists.
