WOMEN‘S* SHELTER – Collaboration with Mirijam Heiler
International Day for the Elimination of Violence against WomenAlois Pupp Park, Brixen
The protection from violence must be valid for all women*. The prevention and ending of violence against women* is not only a moral obligation but also the key to increasing women's rights and gender equality.
Domestic violence as the most common form of violence often takes place in secret - the view from the outside is shielded. The metal screen as a protective solid surface is perforated and refers to the relationship between visibility and invisibility. The artwork stands for the right to effective protection regardless of origin, gender and social status and the necessity of protective institutions in the fight against violence. The number of the women's shelter in Brixen is engraved on the protective screen: 800601330
