VIDEO: Marge Monko - Nora's Sisters
Monko uses historical photographs of women workers at Krenholm to animate a fragment of a play written by Austrian Nobel Prize winner Elfriede Jelinek (b. 1946), who is famous for addressing the difficulties of women’s lives in our times.
The contrast between the aesthetic optimism of the images of propaganda of women’s work under socialism and a story about the closure of factories in post-industrial Europe results in a humorous and cunning reading of the uncertainties of women’s condition across decades and social systems.
