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.

The UN campaign Orange The World takes place annually between 25 November, the International Day against Violence against Women, and 10 December, International Human Rights Day. For 16 days, we send a strong signal against violence against women. More information at:
