The "Unexposed Wishes" exhibition in Berlin is over. We were delighted to hear from Landesvertretung Baden-Württemberg that this was the most visited exhibition they had ever had in their gallery.

 


Heidelberg 24 - 28 July 2017 

We had a fantastic screening of the documentary film ”The Girls” with a lot of questions about women’s situation in Iran. Our host was Franziska Brantner of the Green party who is running for the German federal elections in September. We wish her the best.

She deserves to be reelected. In our world, we really need these defenders of women’s rights, peace and equality.

My wish is that, one day, we have plenty of these women in Iran’s Parliament as well.

Tchüss Heidelberg and Hello to Vienna where we will be exhibiting from 4 to 22 September in the town hall.
