Is 100 years a lot of time or an incredibly small one? How much social justice can, should and must be possible in 100 years? Are we now celebrating the 100th anniversary of female political franchise at national level, or does the 19 January 1919 much more signify the endless period of time that went before, one in which half of society was categorically written off as unemancipated?
The poster from the two artists Janine Mackenroth and Bianca Kennedy plays with this discrepancy. It caricatures the current situation, in which women change between a hope for a more just future and a sobering analysis of the status quo. Hella and Resi on the poster are enjoying the cake, even though the piece is rather on the small side. They would have expected half of the cake 100 years later.
To the next 100!
