Birgit Bosold has been a board member at Schwules Museum Berlin since 2006. As such, she is responsible for the museum’s finances and played a central role in its strategic realignment.
She was project manager and co-curator of the exhibition Homosexualität_en, which was initiated by Schwules Museum in collaboration with the German Historical Museum in Berlin. In 2015, with substantive support from the Federal and State Cultural Foundations, the exhibition was presented in both museums; in 2016, it was taken over by the LWL Museum für Kunst und Kultur in Münster, which is owned by the Regional Authority of Westfalen-Lippe (LWL).
Together with Vera Hofmann, in 2018 Birgit Bosold was project manager for “Jahr der Frau_en,” a yearlong queer feminist program of Schwules Museum, sponsored by the Berlin Senate’s Department of Cultural and European Affairs. As part of this program, together with Carina Klugbauer, she curated the survey exhibition Lesbisches Sehen with over 30 works by queer artists from the 20th century.
Birgit Bosold made a career in private banking. After obtaining a PhD in literature, she worked many years for various renowned banks. Today she works as a freelance portfolio management consultant for companies, foundations, and private clients, and as a writer and lecturer.
