On the occasion of the 100th anniversary of the women’s vote in Germany and the hundredth anniversary of the death of Rosa Luxemburg, the idea came to me of making a stamp, a pop art portrait of Rosa Luxemburg. Too often, women have been and are excluded from the official story. Rosa Luxemburg is a courageous and impressive thinker who should have a place in history. Live free, for a woman in 2019 is still an everyday struggle. How much courage did it take a hundred years ago to interfere in politics, and to choose free love rather than marriage? The free and brave male characters are in this society worn to the skies. Why should not women have the same visibility? This stamp is a tribute to Rosa Luxemburg and women in general.
To finance this project, I chose the form of crowdfunding, for its participative form. How much are we to see this injustice done to women? How many stamps can we produce? Can we influence things and try to give women the recognition they deserve?
You can support this project by ordering stamps.
