Session: Why We Need More Women In Music

24.09.2015, 11:30 Uhr Alte Liebe, Spielbudenplatz 21-22, 20359 Hamburg

Der Anteil der Frauen im Bereich Labels und Musikverlage liegt bei knapp 43 Prozent in Deutschland , betrachtet man jedoch die Anzahl der Frauen in Führungspositionen so ist die Zahl deutlich geringer. Es braucht mehr Frauen, ruft die Branche, aber bisher hat sich wenig geändert. Braucht es vielleicht eine vergleichbare Bewegung wie in den Bereichen Film, Theater und Journalismus, die eine Quote fordert? Oder hat das die Musikwirtschaft nicht nötig? Künstler_innen dagegen sprechen offen von ihren Erfahrungen als Frau im Musikbusiness, wie bspw. Lauren Mayberry (Chvrches) oder Claire Boucher (Grimes). Das Panel beleuchtet unterschiedliche Perspektiven und zeigt, warum wir dringend diese Diskussion führen müssen.
