Zapatos rojos

Mexican artist Elina Chauvet created her Red Shoes installation for the first time in 2009, choosing a public square in Juárez Chihuahua in which to draw attention to victims of femicide, with each murdered woman represented by a pair of shoes. The installation has now been replicated around the globe. Elina Chauvet’s art initiative is participatory in nature: citizens everywhere are asked to donate shoes and get involved in the project.

Pairs of donated shoes can be dropped off at the entrance to the Opernhaus. They will be stained red and become part of the installation. Alternatively, bring your shoes on the 12th November and do the staining and exhibiting yourself.
