Carrée #01 ‚Femmes Tragiques’ by Andree Volkmann
‚Femmes Tragiques’ shows a selection of some famous women – among them artists, filmstars, royals and a well known fiction character. They all had one thing in common: They died under dramatic circumstances such as suicide, murder or accidents. However, the public reaction was quite diverse and ranged from deep grief and compasssion to cynism and ignorance.
