52 Radiominuten: Mahnmal für Frauen* im Widerstand gegen das NS-Regime

The internationally oriented, two-stage competition for female* visual artists to design an artistic work for women* who resisted the Nazi regime in Upper Austria was announced by OÖ Landes-Kultur GmbH on behalf of the province of Upper Austria together with the University of Art and Design Linz. The Kulturquartier, which is located on the site of the former Ursuline convent and thus at an early location for girls' and women's education, is intended as the location for the prize-winning work. The artistic works are called upon to commemorate the resistance of women during the Nazi era in Upper Austria, their resistant deeds, actions and ideas, as well as to honor them and recognize them as relevant in the present. The artistic works are intended to do justice to the broad, contradictory and heterogeneous field of action in which the women* acted. In addition, they should critically reflect the current debates surrounding monuments in public space.
According to the competition brief. In the meantime, the selected and awarded project is already known.
The project created by Sabrina Kern and Mariel Rodriguez is intended as a memorial to women* who resisted the Nazi regime and is entitled "5 to 12. Unheard-of resistance"
