He Turned 60 today,
This picture is shared to say that there are still people who wants to be on the same picture with him.
Why must we as artists rebel before getting noticed ,
Why must there be suffering before we wake up?
Why does half of us have to go against the current to finally find the respect they deserved in the first place,
why do some of us have to be a rebellion to tell their story which they think is so important to tell.
Why is that necessary ?
Why can we not go smoothly spread the art and make everybody happy because they see something they like.
And obviously we need art to get the message across and art is a good medium to do so because there is still so much to change.
These are very simple questions, with very difficult answers, or not even to be answered to our satisfaction.
It confuses me .
When I read the very terrifying story of Fethietnabiha Zbidi, that Saudi Arabia beheaded her in public on the morning of 20 August esra al ghamgam, she was an activist and activist for women’s rights.
The absolute silence of the media, the international community, but also national, is deafening.
whilst she was beheaded in public.
Realising that Saudi Arabia is Chairman of the Human Rights Council of the United Nations, is that not a global disgrace?
How does that work?
And yes I jump from Rob Scholte to Fethietnabiha Zbidi, knowing that there are hundreds of examples in between , all make an effort in their own way to get one little step further in the message they think is necessary to send into this world .
We are not there yet ..
