Street installation: Happy Holiday! All the Best Rights!
March 8, 2016
This installation was displayed in an Omsk courtyard on March 8, 2016. The artists wanted to remind people about the original meaning of International Women’s Day, to show that many women’s rights were established less than a hundred years ago, and to demonstrate that the struggle for those rights continues.
