„Interieur I, Vorhang, Kraft Achten Nie Macht“ is a sculptural proposal to integrate slogans into everyday life. The work faces the reality of female physical violence and questions the awareness towards this subject or lack of. An ambivalent DIY radicalization. Ambivalent because neither strength nor power are conventional attributes of females in mainstream society, as well as questioning if objects can motivate actions. 

The quote „Respect strength, never power“ is borrowed from the writer and activist Arundhati Roy.
