“From the Life of My Old Woman Friend”

“From the Life of My Old Woman Friend”

Evelin Stermitz (Austria)

The video shows the story of a woman from a distant century. Based on images from the popular German novel "Aus dem Leben meiner alten Freundin" by author Wilhelmine Heimburg in 1894, it shows images of suffering and passive women, in which the images have been created by a male artist.

The video questions the translation of women's stories passed down from one generation to the next, and also asks how we see images of women today in a different century. To what extent do the images still belong to today's society without any nostalgia?
