Women without men!


I had intended a longer blog about the brilliant artist Shirin Neshat. 
But the weather made me sit outside in a friends backyard and have 
a glass of wine instead. Yes! I am guilty... happily guilty....:)
I watched Shirin Neshat's film "Fervor" a few years ago and got 
bewitched by the dramatic and truthful pictures she was showing 
of a world so distant from ours. I think she is probably one of todays 
strongest artistic female freedom figthers, and if you have a 
contender that can match her initiative please give me a hint:)
Fervor 2000

Last week I received the new book about Shirin Neshat's work.
I can't seem to put it down. I keep looking at it before I fall asleep at night.

Next week I would love to have a chance to see her new movie 
"Women without men!"
Here is a cut I found on YouTube. It looks disturbing and astonishing at the same time.


  1. You inspire me to look beyond the frivolous...I love my blog because I think it's a fun escape from the realities of every day life...but sometimes I forget to get serious. : )

  2. Thank you Sunny and thank you Kristin.
    I am not intending to be too serious:) But I like to stop up and fill up my life with a deeper meaning now and then. I hope with my blog that I can reach a broader group of people, the once that are already living life with Art but also the once that might discover Art and Artists they never thought of before and maybe I could inspire them to seek out for more? :) WITH LOVE
