Karolina Freino

Emma Goldman (1869-1940) – the iconic figure of the fight for women’s rights and social justice, as well as of the anarchist movement – was born in Kaunas, in a Jewish family. t is said that her farther hoped desperately for a son; for him a daughter would be a sign of failure.

Karolina Freino locates her Monument to Emma Goldman at the confluence of the Nemunas and Neris rivers in Kaunas – the site relates to the power of unity and solidarity that was one of the key aspects of Goldman’s ideas. The live process of the translation of Morse code, letter by letter, is visible online at www.goldman.bienale.lt.
