Exhibition in f3 – Masterclass portrait
Teacher: Sibylle Fendt
She was a role model. Many young women admired her. She was never afraid to be different and express her opinion out loud, in times when women behaved as expected. At the same time, however, she was polite and considerate. In Iceland, she was the first woman to wear a miniskirt, even when the polar wind blew. To stay warm, she simply walked faster. She was an activist on the front lines, fearless and courageous. She fought for justice and peace. She was hated by her opponents and put in prison for no reason. She was given an unofficial „Berufsverbot“, although no one doubted her competence. However, years of rejection and exclusion have left their mark. Today she is an icon.
