The Main-Kinzig-Kreis calls an impressive institution its own. All activities of the association Archiv Frauenleben im Main-Kinzig-Kreis e.V. aim at researching, documenting and making public the previously overlooked or neglected contribution of women to the economic, social and cultural development in the region. Since 1990, women’s history has been documented here from a female point of view – unique in its regional orientation.
This archive has grown and so it needed new space, which the district made available. The large window front was to be an eye-catcher and at the same time a bit of a visual barrier. And so, as a long-time member of the association, I supported this project by having a semi-transparent curtain made from one of my artworks.
Visit the archive and the exciting events in Gelnhausen, Ziegelhaus 6-8. Now you know how to recognize it.
