On Stage Ausstellung
This year’s anniversary exhibition “100 Years of Women's Studies", shows 46 portraits of female experts whose studies and work are closely linked to the University of Natural Resources and Life Sciences, Vienna.
The idea behind "On Stage" originated in an international teaching cooperation between four European universities to highlight experts and gender-specific topics in engineering and natural sciences (Leibnitz University Hannover, University of Valencia, BOKU – The University of Natural Resources and Life Sciences, Vienna and TU – the Vienna University of Technology). The starting point for this documentation and exhibition project has been deliberately – to present not only the professional work, but also the everyday life and the personal history of women. "On Stage" was first presented in Hannover in 2010 and travelled to Valencia the following year. The exhibition has already been shown three times since then with different focuses in Vienna.
On_Stage 2020 shows the findings of Master’s degree students taking the seminar course "Gender and diversity aspects in planning and professional practice" in the winter term 2019/20, supervised by teachers from the Institute of Landscape Planning, Institute of Forest Ecology and Institute of Soil Research: Doris Damyanovic, Karin Weber, Monika Sieghardt, student assistants Julia Rohrmanstorfer and Anna Gabor.
On_Stage 2020 also incorporates selected portraits from previous exhibitions held in 2014, 2016 and 2018, supervised by teachers from the Institute of Landscape Planning, Institute of Forest Ecology, Institute of Soil Research, Institute of Forest and Soil Sciences and Institute of Mountain Risk Engineering: Doris Damyanovic, Karin Weber, Monika Sieghardt, Karl Stamper, Susanna Wernhart, student assistants Aurélie Karlinger and Milena Kaunert.
Students on the courses "Women in rural gardening and agriculture" supervised by Iris Strutzmann (Institute for Horticulture) and “Rural gender studies” supervised by Ulrike Tunst-Kamleitner (Institute for Sustainable Economic Development) developed additional content on portraits of women in agriculture which are also part of this exhibition.
