October 16, 2020 - Eastern European Culture and Female Empowerment - Interview with Anahita Sadighi for ARTE Generali

ARTE Generali is key partner of the leading art magazine "The Art Gorgeous" for the “Treasure” project, a video interview series

At the age of 26 she opened her first gallery in Berlin with antique art from Asia, now at 31 she already has her second gallery featuring contemporary art. She is an entrepreneur, gallerist and founder. We are talking about Anahita Sadighi, who is introduced in the first episode of the new video series "Treasure: A Female Insight into Art Insurance". Every month, the video interview format of the art magazine The Art Gorgeous, in cooperation with ARTE Generali, presents a young female personality from the art world who talk about career, passion and the most valuable art treasures.

Anahita Sadighi, who is also known as the "youngest gallery owner in Berlin", lets us take a look into her life in this video. Besides art, music is her passion. Her father, who had planned a music career for her, is one of the most sought-after art dealers and gallery owners for non-European art in Berlin. He supported her at the beginning of her career, and so the power woman has managed to prove herself independently on a highly competitive terrain. A remarkable story in a still strongly male dominated space.

Tradition meets modernity

With the help of social media channels such as Facebook and Instagram, she easily manages to balance tradition and modernity. The young gallery owner's aim is to free Far Eastern culture from its dubious and rather negative reputation and to reawaken the fascination of the Orient. The 31-year-old artist knows the dialogue between cultures very well. The Iranian-born artist came to Germany at the age of just over one year. She associates Iranian culture with a mythical awareness of melancholy.

ARTE Generali as a patron to art
