Hanna on “The Red Blind”

In this episode Hanna talks about the painting “The Red Blind” (1918) by the artist Sigrid Hjertén.

“I think the artwork’s title is funny, that it’s named after the red blind. One can wonder, is that really focusing on the right thing? I mean, she’s the one we are looking at! I can imagine that it’s a kind of satire, women aren’t supposed to be the focal point”, says Hanna in the video.
