The Hands Off The Wall festival was created by Austrian artist Chinagirl Tile in 2018. “Gender inequality is a sad reality in the art world. The festival is a platform to increase the visibility of women in the art scene and to honor their work,” says Chinagirl Tile, real name Caroline Taschler, who organizes the festival and also curates. Over the past five years, this has allowed her to bring the work of 150 women artists to the public and shine a spotlight on art by women.a spotlight on over 150 women artists. “The previous four festivals have shown what great work is created when women artists from around the world come together in a positive atmosphere.” She is looking forward to this year’s participants, “From photorealism to pop art to abstract art, it’s all here. Visitors look forward to see very diverse artwork.”

From Friday 28 July 9h to Sunday 30 July evening 2023 spray and paint, female artists from fifteen countries and six continents work live on the walls in the “Werksviertel-Mitte”.
