Herstories by Bus in the Diocese of Linz

Experience Histories and Herstories by Bus

When did political demands first start being taken to the streets of Linz? What did these people want? How did their protesters manifest themselves? Three bus tours—“From One Struggle to the Next,” “Struggle, Embroidery and Roses” and “Papers, Work and Terms of Residence”—set off in search of the traces of social activism past and present in Linz.

These experimental tours are the outgrowth of collaborative efforts undertaken with the following Linz organizations: Gewerkschaftsjugend Oberösterreich (labor union youth group), Pedagogical Academy of the Diocese of Linz, Linz Art University and Radio FRO.

tour: Struggle, Embroidery and Roses
When did political demands first start being taken to the streets of Linz? What did these people want? How did their protesters manifest themselves? Students from the Pedagogical Academy of the Diocese of Linz got together with trafo.K to scrutinize the reality of women’s everyday life on the job. They focused on the history of work in textile plants. This joint effort sought to confront issues that are treated only incidentally in the public perception, on the street, in the workplace, and in educational institutions as well: outwork (home-based production) ... factory work ... piecework ... Various invisible, feminized fields of labor down through the history of the textile industry constitute the point of departure of a tour that deals with stories of feminist struggle and alternative forms of production in Linz.

In cooperation with: Rosel Postuvanschitz, Julia Gerstbauer, Margit Grad, Iris Harratzmüller, Christiane Heindl, Stephanie Helmberger, Anita Jovic, Elisabeth Keppelmüller, Eva König, Susanne Larson, Christine Reitner and Katharina Schinagl

trafo.k's latest project is to provide feminist, queer workshops for vocational schools. According to their website.
Flic Flac * a pilot model feminist, transdisciplinary workshops for Berufsschule How many sexes are there? Television, advertising, questions in questionnaires, changing rooms, literature, the toilets in public spaces, and most contemporary education have a clear answer: There are two sexes, men and women. The feminist research takes up this question and analyses it : This idea is not an irrefutable truth. What does this all mean for men and women?
