a few weeks back i flew to tbilisi to prepare for an exhibition. in my luggage i had one picture which is very dear to me. it showed a maria-face on a piece of cardboard which i had found in the garbage and its name was "ave maria in the industrial age". it is my reflection on modern spirituality.

on the airport i came around one corner and there were three woman sitting/lying on the ground, in full-body-cover like some muslims do.

i realize i am still in shock. these women were by all means and purposes ... slaves. would i have passed by, shyly avoiding eye contact, had it been three half naked black men with iron chains around their ankles?

some muslim women are kept as slaves. literally.
