Om en tidsvigtig video-baseret kunstinstallation af Gudrun Steen-Andersen i Aarhus 7. juli 2019 Invandring og det fremtidige, blandede, multikulturelle samfund er et af tidens vigtigste spørgsmål – især hvis det kobles sammen med krigen som institution. For dén er jo den største producent af asylsøgende og flygtninge. Billedhuggeren Gudrun Steen-Andersen, der holder til i Aarhus, har fået den geniale idé […]

Peace illiteracy

And why I am switching balances from the most noble and important – but momentarily meaningless – job to something more rewarding… February 1, 2019 Just yesterday, I posted this extremely important and modest appeal – the Basel Appeal – on our foundation’s homepage, The Transnational, here.

On Trump endorsing torture

Human rights is not my field but we have to speak up against Trump’s personal endorsement of it. This is nothing new, the US has used it all the time. But isn’t it tragic that almost 70 years after torture was prohibited in the Universal Declaration of Human Rights, we see 141 countries still using torture – according to Amnesty […]
