How about a curtain rod suspended by two large, removable stick on wall hooks?

I can't screw hooks to the wall. Am a tenant.

I've used coat racks. Cheap from Goodwill or make your own. Curtain rod completes the setup.

I made mine from 2" PVC pipe. The rear legs are short so it gets closer to the wall.

Coat rack in action (as a light stand) over a decade ago:



That elongated box on the floor was my crossbar. Going cheap is awkward and then exhausting. Thanks to grip gear, my current backdrop can scrape the paint off the wall if I want, and I can set it up any where, any way:
