Technique: mixed technique
The work was created because the refugee issue was very preoccupying for me around 2015. As a self-employed person, it was not possible for me to get involved as a volunteer. Nevertheless, I was looking for a form of processing, and this was found where my strength lies: in a visual work.
After a lot of research and numerous discarded sketches, the zine of illustrations was finally created, accompanied by a mixture of factual and poetic texts. Although the zine has an almost historical character with its strong connection to the refugee movements in 2015, it always remained topical: the topic kept going, like recently the burning Moria refugee camp.
