„Elise“ von Manuel Frolik

This photographic portrait by the Dresden artist Manuel Frolik shows a young girl at a construction site behind Dresden-Neustadt station. "Elise" symbolizes a generation tasked with rectifying the repercussions of past decisions. Her clothing, in the colors purple, white and green, is reminiscent of the suffragette movement, which campaigned for women's suffrage and gender equality at the end of the 19th and beginning of the 20th century. This connection underlines the continuing importance of social commitment and calls for us not to forget historical struggles and to work today for a fairer tomorrow.
