Work by Isabella Burtscher
Keiner Einzige Weniger - Nem um a menos, 2022
Poplar plywood plates processed with laser cutter, welding wire
The work shows the number of murders of women* based on their gender in Austria since the beginning of the year 2022. On average 3 women* or girls* are murdered per month in Austria, in most cases by close persons like (ex-)partners, sons or fathers. The most dangerous place for women is not out on the street at night, but at home in broad daylight in the family.
*Women and girls are given an asterix* to mark gender as a social construction.
The exhibition is open to the public from July 22, from 3 p.m. to 6 p.m., to on July 24, from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. these two days.

Being surrounded by dust, debris, destroyed dreams and hopes, as well as gray tones and suffering are omnipresent in war experiences. This is also the case in the text "The Prophet" by Samuel Rawet. The latter did pioneering work by being the first to address the Shoah in Brazil. In this work, the linoleum prints serve as an allegory of the mediating feeling of inner emptiness. Imagine you are surrounded by human ashes.
Artwork by Mattia Minelli:

A look in the mirror can be different.
But is it true and honest?
In the setting of an Instagram feed we often show ourselves from a different side, but are we then still ourselves?
