bertha von suttner revisited

Christa Biedermann satirises the arms industry and military service in her comic-like mural drawing Antimilitarismus-Comix (1979/80) from the perspective of the Austrian feminist peace movement of the 1970s. As an activist in a feminist-orientated peace movement, Frauen für den Frieden (Women for Peace), Christa Biedermann addressed the public in the 1970s with various projects. In her pen and ink drawings, which are designed like comic strips, she addresses the arms race and the Cold War.
In her film Die Mauer (The Wall), 1989–1991, Christa Biedermann engages with the dissolution of a border, i.e. the Berlin Wall, which 'fell' after more than 28 years in the night from Thursday 9 November to Friday 10 November 1989. In "documentary credits", Biedermann captured this process from December 1989 to October 1991 at key points, such as at Checkpoint Charlie, Potsdamer Platz or the Brandenburger Tor.
