Another big sign against violence against women and children by Gottfried Helnwein 

Despite the importance of other topics Gottfried Helnwein says that, "we always overlook the biggest and longest of all wars, the silent war against women and girls all over the world, " This is the reason for the installation of his second painting from the project series "My Sister". Mid-December the first artwork of this series has been hung up at St. Stephen's cathedral in Vienna and, based on the events in Iran, these intend to call for no tolerance for violence agains women and girls in any way.

A six-storey high artwork of a bloodied teenager has been hung up at the house front of the Viennese Hoxton Hotel at Rudolf-Sallinger-Platz. Everybody that needs to stop in front of the red traffic light on that square is forced to look at this impressiv work.

Gottfried Helnwein's sign for the "right to empathy" at St. Stephen's Cathedral Vienna.

Gottfried Helnwein, My Sister, St. Stephen's Cathedral Vienna

Based on the events in Iran, it should call for no toleration of violence against women and children.

Gottfried Helnwein knows how to attract attention – and sees himself in a long tradition of committed art. After the wrapping of the Ringturm (2018), it is now again prominently present in Vienna's urban space: From Tuesday, a large-format picture, with the addition "My Sister", will be emblazoned on St. Stephen's Cathedral - and probably disturb the Advent shopping idyll a little. The reason for the action is based on the events in Iran - but the message should not be limited to this, as the artist emphasizes.

How did the project to mount a picture of an injured girl at St. Stephen's Cathedral come about?

Gottfried Helnwein: In my work, I have always dealt with the topic of violence, especially violence against children. The biggest, oldest and most far-reaching violation of human rights has always been violence against women and children. Humanity has become so accustomed to women being oppressed, discriminated against and disenfranchised that no one notices it anymore.
But now in Iran we have one of the rare moments when women and, thank God, men, risking their lives, openly rebel against it, and I think we have an obligation to stand with these women and girls.
I am in conversation with exiled Iranian women and have decided to make an installation on this topic in public space.
