It's a unique art project by Visual Artist Marijke Schurink. A dark-haired woman gazes at you intently. Her hands seem ready to grab you. Between her mouth and her fingers a red piece of string is stretched in the shape of a star. We are looking at photographer Maria Austria (1915-1975) from the book 1001 Vrouwen uit de Nederlandse geschiedenis (1001 women from Dutch history) by historian Els Kloek, as reworked by visual artist Marijke Schurink.
