dOCUMENTA (13)

dOCUMENTA (13) is an international exhibition, which takes place every five years for 100 days in Kassel (Germany), and runs til September 16, 2012. The last version of documenta drew over 750,000 visitors from all over the world, and similar attendance is expected for 2012. www.documenta.de

This number of visitors will put the emphasis on one important lesbian project proposed by Zanele Muholi a South African photographer, which features close-up pictures of women. It’s about the difficult condition of being lesbian in South Africa.

These photos are raw and beautiful! I know my readers will enjoy the beauty of these photos as much as I do. The message is even greater. These images will be displayed as a way to express LGBT rights. Not only is there a good cause for these photos, but they are remarkable to look at. I don’t know the struggles for lesbian women in South African, but these photos are amazing and if it can bring light to a dim situation then that is a wonderful thing.

Art relates to so many people in many different ways, and these photographs will speak to you!

Enjoy,

  1. Please consider introducing Heather’s story, a series of ebooks entitled “Her Letters from Prison”, to your readers.

    Heather Heaton’s new ebook series (“Her Letters from Prison”) is an inspirational resource for reading pleasure, review, contemplation, and discussion.

    Heather’s own testimony: “God changed my life in prison!”

    “Her Letters from Prison” (Parts 1 & 2) will validate your inquisitive thoughts and doubts about what goes on in women’s prisons (It is what it is!); and it can justify the efforts spent toward women’s prison ministries. These two ebooks can be a motivational (tell-it-like-it-is) resource for drug rehab/prevention and reentry programs, especially when combined with “Her Letters from Prison – Part 4: Recycled – Second Time Around”.

    “Her Letters from Prison” is a non-fiction, inspirational, romance ebook series; with Heather’s original letters (with prison art) included as images for authenticity. Heather’s story describes how female offenders are perceived and handled (often abused) in the criminal justice system. The story continues (Part 4) to describe Heather’s first two years of re-entry back into the real world and how she ended a destructive narcissistic-codependent relationship.

    “Her Letters from Prison: Women-in-Prison” (Part 3) contains two PowerPoint presentations prepared for the University of Alabama/Women’s Studies “Women in Prison” conference. Both presentations are based on Parts 1 & 2 of Heather’s story; and they are entitled “Women-in-Prison (Almost Invisible)” and “Women-in-Prison (Facts/Myths)”. Also, Heather’s personal testimony is included in the Part 3 publication.
