Conference on Gender Equality in Higher Education from September 3rd-5th, 2014

The starting point for “On Stage” was the Spanish exhibition “La Mujer construye” about the work of female architects in Spain. In the next stage guest professor Lidewij Tummers at gender_archland brought this idea to Hanover. Finally 2011 the first exhibition under the direction of Eva M. Álvarez and Barbara Zibell about female architects and landscape architects took place in cooperation with the Chamber of Architects of Lower Saxony in Hanover. In 2012 it was then continued in Valencia by Eva M. Álvarez and her team. In March 2014, the “On Stage” exhibition took place at the University of Natural Resources and Life Science, Vienna (BOKU).  This exhibition “In Szene setzen – On Stage Vienna 2014!” focused on the careers of gender sensitive female experts in politics, administration, planning practice and universities in Austria. The concept “On stage Vienna BOKU” was developed by ten students through a teaching co-operation between the Institute of Landscape Planning, Department of Landscape, Spatial and Infrastructure Sciences, BOKU Vienna and the Centre of Sociology and Centre of Regional Planning and Regional Development, Department of Spatial Planning, TU Vienna. In summer term students from the TU and BOKU have developed a concept to show all three exhibitions at the 8th European Conference on Gender Equality in Higher Education from September 3rd-5th, 2014, TU Vienna, Austria.
