Sometimes, having too much "inspiration" is a bad sign...
Btw, I know there is much more horrible stuff going on in the world. These are just topics that affect me personally.
There are more and more populist far-right groups organizing public demonstrations against "immigration", "islamization" etc. in various German cities. Some politicians call them "neo-nazis in pinstripe suits", however, our Federal Interior Minister emphasizes the need to care about these people's concerns...
What about MY concerns..?
*PEGIDA = Patriotic Europeans against the Islamization of the Occident
(What is a patriotic European?? What is Islamization?? What is the Occident??)
where shall I start....
Those of you who are following me on facebook (Soufeina Tuffix Ha) will know that there is so much going on, lately. Besides working at a local company while preparing my master's thesis, this all happened the last months (art-related of course):
After my latest journal entry there were more interviews: "Hannoversche Allgemeine Zeitung", "Hamburger Abendblatt", "Neue Osnabrücker Zeitung" , "Spiegel Online", Turkish Newspaper "Zaman", two times in the "taz", "Islamische Zeitung" and "ZeitCampus".
I gave lectures at an event in Darmstadt, a school in Saarlouis and a church in Osnabrück.
Me and my work were shortly presented in the "Women in the World Summit" (typical guests of that NY event: Hillary Clinton, Angelina Jolie, Meryl Streep..waaah). Moreover I had my works exhibited in Berlin at the "Islamwoche".
Next week my works will bei displayed in the Institute for Intercultural Islamic studies at the University of Osnabrück, where I will be giving a lecture, too.
It feels as if it's all too much fuss for just some comics and cartoons but again: Alhamdulillah, I thank God for all these chances I get lately!
And thank you again for your support, deviantart was a great stepping stone!
