March 8th is celebrated as International Women's Day. A day to fight for equality, participation and empowerment in all areas of society. From the School of Arts and Crafts we want to contribute our point of view of women in art.
We have chosen a feminist artist Yayoi Kusama, Japan 1929, who in most of her works exhibits a thematic interest in psychedelia and repetition. She began covering surfaces (walls, floors, canvases, objects,...) with polka dots, which would become the personal trademark of her work. From the School of Arts we have picked up her witness; for this, we have covered the facade with purple circles, which in turn, are the symbol of feminism.
