Friday, 25th november 2022 | 5 pm
Meeting point: tba
Since october the poster campaign Something is wrong: A campaign series against violence against women by Lungomare is presented in public space. In the name of art in public space Tirol 2022 we invite you to take a walk through the city and talk about the posters.
According to the annual report of the Autonomous Austrian Women’s Shelters in 2020, about three women are murdered every month in Austria, and every fifth woman is exposed to physical and/or sexual violence after the age of 15. The number of female murder victims in Austria is significant in an EU comparison. Focusing on these drastic facts, Lungomare is developing a three-part poster campaign in a dialogic process with artists and NGOs working in the field of victim protection and prevention. This will appear in public spaces in Tyrol in autumn 2022. #somethingiswrong will transform the public space of cities and villages surrounding us every day and use billboards otherwise dedicated to advertising in order to collectively create awareness, stimulate conversations and initiate transformative processes.
