Mein Land braucht Künstler

my country needs artists

a short performative statement
during the exhibition Parallelwelten Afrika Europa
Kunsthalle Faust, Hannover GERMANY

while I have washed my mouth out with soap,
I read names
names of visual artists
names of writers
names of musicians
all have been or are still being persecuted for their art.
