This year, the Academy of Fine Arts is showing solidarity with "Orange the World" by displaying orange flags at the entrance of the main building at Schillerplatz. With this participation, we want to publicly position ourselves against all forms of gender-based violence.

For the seventh year in a row, Orange The World takes place in Austria. The unfortunately still urgently needed initiative to combat violence against women* shouts into all four winds this year's motto "Men can end violence against women!". Patriarchal violence such as toxic images of masculinity, aggression and control are clearly highlighted through femicide and its place we must abolish.

Only together we can change this sad reality and that's why we want to take a public stand against all forms of gender-based violence. Solidarize and inform yourselves! #16days
