Losing every day – III

An awkward gallery. The last part of my series “Losing every day”.

Das war so ein Theater!

This is the Concordia Theater in Bremen, now almost every day I’m passing by. And every time, even when I’m speeding with my bike, I have a sad moment. Such great plays I have seen there… Although I love industrial and urban decay, I feel horrible about closed theatres. And then I ask myself: When was the last time, you went out to see a play? And then I tell you: Go to the theatre! Get irritated! You deserve it.

Nature is art. Art is nature.
Impressive what it will make up in one night.

Spring was Earth’s Biggest Birthday Party Ever

So sad it’s only one time a year.

Opinion: Don’t stop drawing, don’t stop writing!

The assassination of twelve people in Paris because of their journalistic work made me deeply sad. As a writer I believe in an imagination without borders and the right to express your ideas with art. I wouldn’t say that art is not a weapon, art can hurt people, even make them speechless and unable to act. Is their a right to hurt other people’s feelings? I think, yes!

I am and always was a big fan of satire. Sometimes it can hurt very hard, I remember feeling hurt about some caricatures that I saw and articles that I read. Satire is an instrument to shock and provoke. It will bother you. It gives you an opion. It makes you to want to say something. You may be angry, you may be laughing, but you will think about it!

If you kill, people will be hurt as well. But the chance to make people think is gone forever.

The freedom of opinion should be a basic right. My solidarity and respect these days are with all cartoonists, painters, bloggers, journalists, writers around the world who are beeing oppressed. Don’t stop drawing, don’t stop writing!

Today once again another bilingual article. You are free to choose the language you trust. 😉 We start with English.

Heute einmal wieder ein zweisprachiger Artikel. Es steht euch frei, die Sprache eures Vertrauens zu wählen. 😉 Wir enden mit Deutsch.

Usually I don’t make New Year’s resolutions. The occasion seems arbitrary and have a lack of motivation for the typical resolutions. Yes, of course, like everyone, I want to be three kilos lighter, sportier, more successful in my career and spend more time with friends and family at once. But these wishes are so vague, that I cannot believe that they actually will be fulfilled. Though I have a lot of plans and ideas in my current phase of life, I want to write some of them down and watch next year at the same time how much of them I could put into practice. How many? Five are too little, twenty too much, so ten.

Here they are: Continue reading
