"A Universe for Love"
A universe for love. A universe of love for ONE mankind.
The Ukraine war throws us back for decades and makes it very easy for every single one of us to fall back into old patterns, creating Russia as our defined enemy. We stand with Ukraine. We condemn Putin. But we also need to remember that the Russian people are not enemies of the West. Many of them do not stand behind Putin and don’t believe in his well-prepared propaganda. Some of them are even brave enough to protest openly against the war, regardless of the consequences. This is a dictator’s mind evolved through history, trying to create a new (old?) world order. And, it is not only Putin’s war. It is the war of all people who believe in those old structures of domination, supremacy and unconditional nationalism without reflection, not only in Russia.
To all of you who believe like me in ONE humankind. We stand with Ukraine and for democracy. Even of it is sometimes very hard, let's not give up on our differentiated perspectives. Our nationalities might have shaped us, but it is not all that defines us.
Stick with love.
Finished on first day of war
"One World Parachute"
I was wondering if I dared to picture the whole world as a parachute for Ukraine given the circumstances.
A one world parachute. Not divided by countries but unified by people.
People who speak up for Ukraine, for democracy, and for freedom. People who speak up against war, fascism and nationalism, no matter their nationality or origin.
Finished on fourth day of war
"All We Have to Give"
"All We Have to give" pictures the world and Ukraine on a light bridge in the universe. The man, in blue and yellow, represents Ukraine. The woman, represents the world - tiptoeing between the wish to give all that she can and being afraid of what will happen if she does.. The man holds a sunflower, representing the symbol of resistance against political & violent repression and their fight for sovereignty. The woman holds a heart, a symbol for love. But also solidarity, empathy and helplessness, because this is "All We Have to Give".
And from my personal perspective?
Solidarity. Hope. Love. That is all I have.
