Hannah Marynissen is an art historian whose research into women photographers led her to Moderne Welt, a publication produced at the Palais des Beaux Arts from 1918-1939. Through this work, she discovered that Moderne Welt served as a bastion for female-led photography studios in Vienna, and specifically for those of Jewish descent. For the collection of the PdBA, Marynissen wrote an essay that expands upon this research, focusing a feminist lens upon how Aryanization affected both the photographers being commissioned and the representation of models being portrayed in the pages of Moderne Welt.

(...) From the 1927 to the mid-1930s, the number of women photographers who regularly published their work in Moderne Welt jumps from two to nine different studios. Many of these female photographers – Pepa Feldscharek, Edith Glogau, Dora Horovitz, Kitty Hoffmann – had graduated from the Graphische Lehr-und Versuchsanstalt. As the number of photographs by women photographers grew, so did the diversity of the women represented in Moderne Welt. From actresses to opera singers, dancers, pilots, and professors; women were increasingly being discussed and staged as a key part of the cultural zeitgeist.
