Thank you Jan
it's not strange to be in 1st International Gathering on Art and Peace you belong to human being ,
you are in my thinking and you know as I think we are you and me in same way,
but what happened in Gaza outside of humanbeing behavior, and the photo don't give us all truth,
what the meaning of destruction 25 thousands home a lot of them destruction on heads of familys with new technique bomb make cancer,
there is a lot of talk about of this massacre's,
but why because of legend says god promised to give them this land, any logical man can know this is not right.
you know may opinion in all religions it is just legends,
Peace and Greeting

Dear Artreview friends, unfortunately I can not engage with art review as often as I would like and am feeling quite guilty, this is purely due to time constraints. In any case will be in Bremen as from the 1st Sept. - 10th where we will be exhibiting the 'Women for Children' collection at the Villa Ichon Gallery. Will try and attached the poster, anybody in the area are welcome to connect with me during this time. Will also be doing some workshops at the Art Academy. Jan

my Statement and art work. deal with man relationships with man,and himself, nature, science.
Now in all of the world we are living with two problems the question of man relationships with man. and environment pollutions.
I do not believe in the old legends but I believe in our new legend it is the Internet . through dialogues we can reach our target, to accept the others.
as an artists we can do many things for this.
Hey Jan. I'm getting to that, but I need to load software to get the photos off my phone. I'll have them posted sometime this weekend. About the pictures of staff and students, I'll see what I can do!!
Dear Otto, thank you for your interest in AFH, I founded the organisation as a action research unit, hoping to bring art to communities that does not normally engage in art. Must say the responses from the communities has been great.
